Empowered Women International came into Rana Jaafar Yaseen’s life at a time of change and uncertainty. As a refugee from Iraq, Rana came to the United States with her talents, dreams and hopes for starting a new life but she soon realized that it would not be easy.
EWI guided Rana through her transition into a new life, as she was overcame language barriers and was embraced by a community that helped her to recognize her power and utilize her gifts. Rana has become a part of the commitment of EWI to help others reach their goals. Rana reminds us that our craft can be a source of healing and challenges are not impossible to overcome, they are an opportunity to create!
