Montclair State University swimmer Ponsee Ibrahim moved to New Jersey eight years ago after the Egyptian revolution of 2011 started. Back in her hometown, there was little support and encouragement for her swimming career. In the United States, she feels like she can achieve her dreams. This experience is giving her a voice and an opportunity to be heard and help change people’s perceptions of what a refugee is.
