Our New Beginnings Awardees for 2022 have been announced. We are so proud of these incredible women who have overcome unimaginable barriers to restart their lives.
Our “first”awardee for this event was in need of job training and a job after she had to abandon her happy family life in Pakistan to seek political asylum in the USA. Her goals were always to make a difference to other people, which she did in Pakistan as a highly educated master’s degree specialist who worked with rural women in order to aid them to escape poverty and abuse. Due to her efforts, she was forced to leave due to religious militants who didn’t want women to have rights. Leaving her family behind in Pakistan, she had to start over from scratch in a new country and environment. Her journey was long and difficult. Initially, she needed money for driving lessons in order to obtain a license. In addition, she couldn’t have a job due to her lack of a green Card. Luckily, we (DHM) managed to help her with the driving lessons and license process. After managing to get a job, she enrolled into an LPN program which she completed and which allowed her to get into school to be an RN, and the DHM helped her obtain books and resources. As of February 1st, she obtained her nursing license and is working at a care facility in Bergen County as Assistant Resident Services Director. Furthermore, after 5 long years, her family has been approved to immigrate into the US, and she reunited with her husband and children. This awardee’s story teaches us an important lesson, to always move forward with hope and perseverance, and to not let the circumstances around us be the source of our defeat. After 5 years of hard work, she is now a licensed nurse and is able to support her family. And after all of this, she strives to be an inspiration for other women. The award we shall give her will allow her to do this and to guarantee a good life for her family.
