What alumni said about their experience:
"Before I came here, I met a Palestinian in Germany. He told me that I had no right to Palestine…But coming here has shown me that my people, my brothers and sisters, are accepting. Palestinians are all one, no matter where we're from, where we live, and what our circumstances are."
"I was raised in the South in the United States, so especially after September 11th, I was told to lie about my heritage and so that's what I did. But being here has been really transformative. I'm so grateful to KTH and HCEF, and mostly I'm just grateful to be Palestinian and now, I'm not afraid to say it."
"The peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Christians; I didn't really know there were Palestinian Christians, but I see now that there is no difference here between Christians and Muslims. All are Palestinians."
"I don't even want to go home right now. I feel so instantly comfortable here. I am home."
-Jessica Rayyan, Arizona (KTH 2011)
