Long commented on Helping refugees feel welcomed

Hi Angie! I think your idea speaks up the mind of many refugees around the world. This is exactly a common problem for them. I strongly support this idea. The only concern that I have is that each refugee has different level of foreign language proficiency and hence there might need to be different sessions designed for different categories of them.

Anyway, very cool idea.

Hi Sara! Love the idea of having refugees-run university. This actually solves the problem that most refugees often phase during the early phase of fitting in a new destination: Language, language, and language.

I am just a bit concerned if the size of the refugee community matters in this case? This should work well with a community with a large number of refugees from the same country of origin. However, can this work if the number of refugees is too large enough for a university to be set up?

Other than that, this is a very meaningful contribution!
