My name is Ali Raza Ashraf and I am from Pakistan. I am a student of Migracode and
Volunteering at Open Cultural Center. I came to know about OCC through my Migracode
Program Manager, when I came to know about what OCC is, It does not take too long to make
OCC is an organisation that inspires, motivates, and empowers the refugee and migrant
communities.When I look at the world, even though I am an immigrant, I see myself living a
privileged life compared to other people, especially migrants. I want to give back to society, I want to
share what I have so everyone can have resources and knowledge to empower themselves. And
OCC is helping me to deliver what I dream of.
I met the most amazing people of my life at OCC, everyone is here with the same goal to make the
world a better place to live. We are a family taking care of each other, everyone is so supportive and
passionate to make a change in the world. I am so proud to be part of such a noble project and I am
very thankful and lucky to get this opportunity. Peace comes with love and respect, May GOD bless
us with love and peace, today and always.
