Iraqi Student Project makes school possible for refugees

About 3,000 Iraqi refugees live in the greater Chicago area according to the Iraqi Mutual Aid Society. Sarab Shada, 21, is one of them. She came to Loyola University through the Iraqi Student Project, a grass-roots organization aimed at providing an undergraduate education to Iraqis who cannot complete school because of violence. Shada plans to return home to become an elementary school teacher after she graduates.
