It is our great privilege at ACC to see transformation, and Sami is an outstanding example of what can happen when opportunities are shared with newcomers. Sami arrived from Syria in July of 2016. He and his family had a long and arduous journey from Syria to the United States, but upon arrival they were motivated and eager to start their new life. Sami was initially hired by Deny Design of Leaf Group as a production laborer. One year later, he was promoted to the Operation Associate position where his salary increased significantly. Sami has moved from a place of fear for his safety to a life of rebuilding and opportunity right here in Denver. We are so grateful for the opportunity to welcome community members like Sami!
