Meet Mohamed. He’s from Freetown, Sierra Leone and worked as a security guard for the Peace Corps, which is where he met his American girlfriend, who was also working for the Peace Corps at that time. After his girlfriend’s two-year term was done, they decided to move together to the girl’s hometown in Kalamazoo, Michigan. However, the two are no longer dating but he still continues to live with the parents of his now ex-girlfriend and is acknowledged as part of the family. As of now, he’s studying business in Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
