“For me, participating in the forum “A way forward: The Welcoming Communities Initiative” as a representative of the student committees of Proyecto Habesha meant a great experience because I had the opportunity to share with other young people of different nationalities how Mexican students are encouraging Mexican universities to open support channels to provide higher education to young refugees and displaced people around the world, likewise, I got to know the different perspectives of the participants, which helped me a lot to understand that it does not matter if we are from other countries we are united and support the same cause.”
