Alum Ali Alrubaiee

Commencement 2015: Ali Alrubaiee

Sunday, December 13, 2015

Ali Alrubaiee was born and raised in Iraq, but always loved America. He acted as a translator for the United States military during the war in Iraq. His actions earned him a special visa which allowed him to immigrate with his family to the U.S. Now an American citizen, Ali continues to make a difference in veterans' lives. He credits UTA with instilling in him a love of community. We spoke with Ali as he prepared to graduate in December 2015.
