EMILY’S STORIES


“I had to figure out how to organize my life and my family and how to be successful in the U.S.”
— Adnan

In Syria, Adnan studied pharmacology in college and worked as a Pharmaceutical Representative and in medical sales for 7 years. When he first arrived here in Denver, he heard about Emily Griffith and started taking English classes. “One of the challenges I faced upon arriving was getting familiar with new words, new language, new environment, new expectations,” explains Adnan. “I had to figure out how to organize my life and my family and how to be successful in the U.S. It was really expensive in Colorado and a challenge to get a job. I got a job as a driver, but it wasn’t in my field and I didn’t make enough to pay my expenses.”

He says that Tiffany Jaramillo helped him in the CAREERS program and once his English was good enough he worked on getting into the Pharmacy Tech program. “I needed to get my high school diploma from my country, but this was too hard because my country was in the war. I had to get the documents I had translated and then work with the Health Science department to get approved with what I had,” explains Adnan.

The Pharmacy Tech classes have had their own challenges for Adnan. “I had to learn a new vocabulary and medical words. My primary language is Arabic and most of the people in my class speak English,” he says. “Mr. Joe has helped me if I need specific or more help or clarifications. He is a helpful man.”
