Hanna Jaff Bosdet was born in San Diego to a Mexican (Catholic) mother and a Kurdish (Muslim) father and learned from a young age about bias and discrimination; in America it is
not socially ideal to be either Mexican or Muslim, and she is both. Growing up with parents who love and respect each other despite their cultural differences, Hanna knew that these biases were wrong, and she decided to change the misconceptions that people have, while also helping refugees and immigrants that lack proper resources and educational tools. Her first step was to educate herself, something that she dove head first into, receiving a Master’s Degree in International Relations from Harvard University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from National University (California). She also studied at Columbia University in New York, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Monterrey, and La Sorbonne University of Paris. She traveled the world, meeting and connecting with immigrants and refugees to see firsthand what resources they were lacking. Whether she was in Iraq, Mexico, India or beyond, the biggest lesson she learned was that they longed to learn English – one of the most universal languages – so that they can communicate better with the outside world.
