Resiliency Through Adversity
Keynote: Tareq Hadhad
Wednesday January 25, 2023, 11:30 – 12:30 ET
Join Tareq on an emotional journey from Syria to Canada with heart-breaking and perspective-shaping stops along the way. From sunny days in Syria where the scent of roses filled the air to the beginning of conflict and war. Listen as Tareq shares the fear and confusion that came when violence and danger begin to slowly surround his family. Understand what it is really like to spend days hiding in your basement, praying for safety and food and medicine. Learn how a family made the decision to leave everything behind in search of safety outside of their homeland only to find more uncertainty and desperation as refugees in Lebanon. Witness the life-changing impact of being granted a family ticket to Canada and watch as that country's Prime Minister singles out the Hadhad family and their community for its perseverance and kindness. This is an emotional rollercoaster that will leave you feeling inspired and resolved to make your own impact on the world.
