Social work major Qusay Hussein was featured on a Guardian article about people who are given a second chance in life. Hussein, a native of Iraq, suffered life-threatening injuries as the victim of a suicide bombing in 2006, when he was 17 years old. He lost half of his face and his vision. He came to the United States as a medical refugee through Doctors Without Borders. Hussein graduated from Austin Community College in 2006 and is now a double major in psychology and social work at UT Austin. He is also an advocate for refugees and people with disabilities.
