At Home with Girard Habonimana

Girard Habonimana

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – There are 143 languages other than English spoken in the homes of Utah students. Many of them are refugees. Most will say they are happy to be here. But they are also particularly vulnerable to feelings of alienation: some have lost one or both parents, and they must adapt with little help from their families who are struggling to survive. KUER's Jenny Brundin takes a look at life at home of one refugee youth, and how his parents relate to him in this new world.
