About Me The Fall of 2010 I'm pursuing my Masters in international social work at Dominican University (Chicago). I hope to concentrate in Immigrant & Refugee Services. My focus is on working in North Africa / the Middle East and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I'm building experience to provide social services to at-risk teens, the elderly, the developmentally disabled, and refugees in this region.
