Coming from a Syrian family, Alan was born and grew up in Venezuela understanding what it means to be an immigrant. Before coming to the US, he got a bachelor's in communication and social development, and a master's in communications and human development, developing a passion for diversity, inclusion, and equality.

He's been an independent journalist for a decade and recently became an independent researcher with a focus on literature, paying special attention in both fields to mental health and identity. When he couldn't stay in Venezuela anymore for safety reasons, he moved to the US and helped his family do the same, giving him personal experiences as an immigrant. When not working, Alan likes to spend his time around books, his family, and his dog, watch a good movie, and study Arabic.


Dan Raleigh

Intensive English Teacher

Dan's interest in refugee services began in 2016 when he worked full-time with newly arrived refugees in San Diego, California. Throughout college, he served as a Program Director for a non-profit organization specializing in business education and community development projects in rural Tanzania. As part of his academic research, he conducted in-depth interviews with survivors of a 2004 massacre. This experience led him to produce his capstone research project on memorialization and its effects on reconciliation. Recently, he returned from Washington DC, where he conducted research on current China-Africa relations. He aspires to make this the focus of his professional career.


Dan is a recent graduate of Brigham Young University, where he majored in political science and minored in international development. His passion for teaching started in China, where he taught English for five months. He is from Spanish Fork, Utah, and is one of six children.
