‘I went to them and said I am not a number. I am a human being. Just one week before and I was in Syria and I had dreams.’
Tareq Hadhad's incredible journey is one of the most inspirational and powerful stories I have ever shared. From a charmed life in Damascus to overnight becoming a refugee of the Syrian Civil War, who spent three years trying to survive in a camp. Tareq and some of his family had an opportunity to move to Canada. A few years later, Tareq was named the fifth annual recipient of RBC Entrepreneur and one of RBC's Top 25 Immigrants, awards that celebrate newcomers who positively impact their communities.
Tareq's story lifts your heart and your spirit while reminding us what we often take for granted, and that is our freedom. With freedom, we can dream and make our destiny a matter of choice, not chance.
