Kudos to Neveen Faress, Royal Le Page representative from Mississauga for her community work. She was recently featured in a Metro news article about how she started a soccer team to help Syrian refugees adjust to their new country. To quote the article:
“I come from Egypt and I know the importance of soccer in people’s lives,” said Faress, whose family moved to Toronto in 1987 when she was only four years old. Now a real estate agent, forming a soccer team was her own way of welcoming Syrian refugees to the city.”
Hat’s off to you, Neveen!
