"I don’t know if there is anyone on Earth who feels more thankful to America than me." Farea al-Muslimi, a YES Alum and youth activist, addressing the U.S. Congress earlier this week in a hearing on the use of drones following a strike on his rural Yemeni community last week. He shared his experiences in America and the impact it has allowed him to have on his community, stating, "I strongly believe that I have helped improve America's image, perhaps in ways that an official ambassador or other diplomats cannot. I have access to ordinary Yemenis. For me, helping the people of my country understand and know the America that I have experienced is a passion, not a career."
