“I have achieved my American Dream now.” – Rebecca Mabior
Rebecca is a mother, raising three children with her husband John. She is a nurse, working as a labor and delivery RN in Kansas City, Missouri. She is a homeowner, a devoted wife, and an activist, calling for equality at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. Rebecca is also a refugee, a person who escaped persecution and probable death for standing up to power in Sudan seventeen years ago.
I Am Rebecca tells the story of this remarkable person as she revisits her past, assesses the present political climate in the United States, and advocates for the future of her family and other refugees. The result is a subtle and deeply emotional examination of identity, displacement, and the fate of this American Dream.
