One Woman’s Journey from Refugee Camp to Minnesota Medical School
Abdi's admission into one of the world's top ranked medical schools is particularly notable as it was just five years ago that she and her family made their way to the United States from the Sheder refugee camp in Ethiopia. At age 13, Abdi and her family fled from civil war in Somalia and found themselves in Sheder among the camp's over 10,000 refugees—of which over half are under 18—where they lived from 2008-2013.
