Thesis Thursday- I hope someday you'll join us

This Thesis Thursday Cathy interviews Ali Shihab. Ali is studying physiology at the University of Arizona. He originally is from Iraq, but came over to the states in 2009 as a refugee. While in Iraq, Ali was studying in medical school, planning to become a doctor. He needs six years of schooling to be considered worthy as a physician in Iraq. Now, at the U of A, Ali studies cardiovascular and Type II diabetes. After seeing how much sugar can affect the human body he hopes to one day make a change for the better. Later, we hear John  Lennon’s  Imagine from the self titled album. Ali chose this in hopes of one day living on a completely peaceful earth. Don’t miss this awakening insight inside the mind of a brilliant man and his internal struggles all on The Home Stretch.
