“Here it is different, very different. We are creating jobs to provide people in other countries and places like Africa. They send tablets to the children, to students. I like it when I see the kids in Africa, they are very happy when they got their tablets from Bak USA.
“I came here as a refugee by an international organization. As a group we are here, we are refugees and we have other people here too. We don’t feel any different between ourselves.
“We feel everybody here is equal from another one. I like this job because it’s not a company only, it’s my family. It’s my second home here.
