Comboni’s friends call him Jamal. He was born in Sudan but moved to Kenya (Kakuma Refugee Camp) with his friends. He is currently a rising sophomore.
Living in the refugee camp for eleven years exposed him to the unaddressed challenges faced by refugees; accessing education like any other human. They do not have opportunities to advance with their studies beyond high school. He is obsessed with the thoughts of how to mitigate this challenge.
He enjoys taking pictures, watching and playing soccer with his friends during free time.
