"My goal has always been to become a leader that will inspire, teach and help raise a generation of entrepreneurs who will go onto make even greater impacts around the world."
The vision for Liberti began more than five years ago when I first volunteered to help with refugee assimilation once they had arrived in the US. This eye opening experience gave me such insight on how difficult it would be to come to a country after spending years in a refugee camp. You’d basically arrive with the clothes on your back and virtually no skills or money to get you started in trying to create a new life. You’d also have to learn a new language, culture and you might not even know a soul here.
Every year, 75,000 refugees leave their homelands and legally obtain their place in our country. They are immediately thrust into a whole new world and expected to assimilate into this different way of life and hit the ground running. But it’s just not that easy.
Over the last 10 years, an average of 75,000 refugees leave their homelands annually to escape persecution and legally arrive in the U.S., and for an opportunity at a better life. In a land created from immigrants and refugees, The US has provided a haven for families fleeing war and persecution to rebuild their lives. The vast majority of Americans today can trace a family history of persecution or desperation that triggered their arrival in the U.S.
In a land created from immigrants and refugees, I’m proud that our country continues to provide a place for families fleeing war and persecution to rebuild their lives here in America. But, historically speaking, we haven’t always treated our newest Americans well. Liberti can’t change the past, but we can help create a better future and show these newcomers that love truly is the international language. We can help the refugees already living here to not only adjust to their new homeland, but to thrive.
Thank you for your generous support and sharing the Liberti love with your friends and family. We truly do feel honored to have you as part of our community.
