I just came down this week to visit and bring my grandma who needed some help with her citizenship paperwork. It was incredible to see that my old Border Awareness Experience Coordinator Saif Almuhairbi has become the Interim Executive Director. He helped us with all of the paperwork we did not fully understand and ensured that if we ran into any problems in the future, to be sure to call him and he would help us with those barriers. Saif is doing an incredible job leading the Center and I am excited to see the future advances they make under his leadership.

Thank you Saif and thank you to the Women's Intercultural Center for being there for people in need. I also have to say the Center looks incredible and the women look so happy.

I came to learn about the Women's Intercultural Center because I came down for their border awareness experience to learn about the border and immigration issues that they face down in the south. I will be honest what I experienced I truly was not expecting. What surprised me the most when I came and was picked up at the airport was our coordinator for the experience was a guy. I figured since it was a women's center it would be a woman greeting us, but I would have it no other way. His name was Saif and he was a very smart individual who I found out redesigned the border awareness experience and I must give him a huge thank you because he did a great job. He designed an experience that shows both sides of the issue. I was able to meet with organizations that advocated for undocumented immigrants and I even met with the Border Patrol which was especially exciting for me. When I heard about our group taking part in a Border Patrol tour I figured we were just going to get a little presentation at their facility. No what we got was one on one time with the agents and a tour of the different areas that the border patrol covers along with a presentation, and a visit to one of their facilities on the border where they control the cameras and speak to the undocumented that have crossed over. This is an experience that should not be missed out on because I was able to ask questions to the agents that were with us and they answered all of them. I have been trying so long to get my questions answered by Border Patrol and never could, but here with this visit to the Women's Intercultural Center and taking part of their program I was able to speak with the Border Patrol. Every individual that has doubts about them needs to take this experience. They truly opened my eyes and I still remember one of the agents telling me, "Look I know a lot of you probably don't like my job, but if you want a piece of advice and want to change the way we handle things on the border, then change the law and I promise you we will follow it." I was amazed he told us to advocate for others if we truly wanted to make a change. This experience was truly amazing and the organizations that advocate for immigrants truly inspired me to work harder and advocate myself. They taught me how to make a difference as well and now I am more knowledgeable on the issues. If you want to learn about border and immigration issues this is the program you need to choose. They will open your eyes and you will leave with an abundance of information. Also what will also make a difference in your experience is see if Saif can join you because he has a lot of amazing information to provide the group and he is very inspirational. I truly have never met an individual like him and he is one of a kind. The experience he created in top notch.

I came here for what was called the Border Awareness Experience program. I would have to be honest, at first I really was not interested in immigration, and only came down for the credit with my school. Although, my life was changed forever after I met the Women's Intercultural Center staff, and specifically their new Interim Executive Director Saif Almuhairbi. Saif is truly an inspiration to all of those he speaks to. Not only is he very knowledgeable about immigration, and I was able to learn so much from him, but Saif also inspired me towards becoming an immigration attorney but also advocating for my community. If you have the opportunity to come down for this experience, seriously TAKE IT, the program changed my life and being able to meet the participants at the Center, meet with judges and attorneys at the courthouse, take a Border Patrol Tour on the border, and the opportunity to sit and talk with Saif truly was incredible. Thank you to the Women's Intercultural Center for this experience and I will definitely be back to Anthony. Saif, please continue the incredible work you do, and thank you for being so open with me and helping me tackle some of my fears.

The Women's Intercultural Center has an amazing staff that is devoted to improving the quality of life for many people going through the citizenship process. Their knowledge and insight to the immigration process was inspiring to learn from. This non-profit is extremely devoted to their clients and educating others about the work they do with the issues they face. If we had more people like them doing this work, our society would be a much better place. I am beyond grateful to have learned from these amazing people, and have been inspired by them to get involved with the immigration process in my own community.

The center provides great workshops to engage with the community, and it allows the community to stay informed about important issues. The public has easy access to these workshops, and many other services provided by the nonprofit. It is a great place/ source for our community.
