A student of the Brown school of Public Health has been left marooned in Turkey since January. Khaled Almilaji, a student of Brown University, has a wife who is heavy with their first child.
He has missed all of his classes at the university as they are all going deep into the second semester of the academic calendar.
He has however been trying to stay up to date with happenings in the classroom from beyond the Atlantic Ocean. Following the halting of current president Donald Trump’s executive policy on migration this month by a federal judge in the United States of America, Khaled has envisioned himself with more hope of coming face to face with his wife once more.
He also understands the new dawn of what it entails to be a Syrian living and studying in the United States.

The number of people that flock the websites of Canadian universities on a daily basis (a point of contact for most students seeking admission) has increased exponentially since the month of November.
A lot of the top-notch universities in the country saw massive increases in applications from the United States: up to about 25% at McGill University, and 35% at McMaster. At the University of Toronto, Canada, the applications submitted by United States students rose by almost 80% in the year.
A high school senior from Severn, Rebekah Robinson, was attracted to the city of Toronto merely because of its climate and worldwide reputation, as well as its mixture of culture and people.
