Walid Sharif Alani | Iraq

Walid worked with USAID, USDA/FAS, and the State Department in Baghdad, Iraq for over 10 years building internal and external customer relations and helping to rebuild the country. Walid was recognized by the State Department for high standards of achievement. He and his family finally had to leave Iraq as a part of the Special Immigrant Visa program because of the ongoing security threats they faced. Here in Colorado, Walid has worked for Project Worthmore, the Denver Library, Plaza Program, and now works for Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains in their navigator program.
