Building Tunnels

My name is Ahmed Badr, and I am a 17-year old former refugee from Baghdad, Iraq.
When I was eight years old, my house was bombed by militia troops. Soon after this event, my family relocated to Syria. After two years in Syria, we applied for refugee status with the United Nations. After a year of interviews and background checks, we received four one-way tickets to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
