This episode was flat out incredible. I sat down with Miriam, a 19 year old refugee from Myanmar. Her and her family's story is nothing short of unbelievable. Born into a civil war, Miriam's family fled to Malaysia and went into hiding. RefugeeOne helped orchestrate Miriam's refugee status and get her family here to Chicago. To this day, she still helps keep her family afloat on her ability to speak english. It's a story of overcoming every odd you could think of. I am positive you'll enjoy this one!
