Mustafa Alwan

Mustafa discovered the sting of discrimination after moving from Yemen to the US during his school age years. He didn’t, however, allow those experiences to define him. Despite having to learn English as a young teen, he rose to the top of his graduating class and is now a student at Middle Tennessee State University.

This story was produced by Elizabeth Ethridge, a student at Middle Tennessee State University, as part of a collaboration between students in Middle East Studies and Nashville Public Television’s Storytellers series.
