Student Profiles | Assi
Kiron Open Higher Education
“My name is Assi. I am originally from Sudan but have been living in Amman, Jordan, for the past five years as a UNHCR registered refugee. Because of my status, I am unable to work, so I decided to focus on my education. I was introduced to Kiron by the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) since I have not had many educational opportunities before.
After taking some courses online, I developed new interests in computer science and language learning. Now I can gain academic experience while also working on myself. I have increased my critical thinking skills, learned new languages, and can now find solutions to problems I have in my daily life.”
