Voices of Lod
Ahmed lives in Lod, is 16 years old, in high school, and one of eight brothers and sisters in his family. He spends a lot of time hanging out and volunteering around the Arab-Jewish Chicago Community Center (Mosaic: Lod Multicultural Cetner) because he enjoys the energy and activities offered there. Ahmed plays football (soccer) and enjoys listening to rap music. He aspires to write and perform music but also is looking forward to passing the exams required for his high school degree, and to study engineering afterwards. Ahmed thinks about raising a family in the area one day and wants his kids to like team Real Madrid as much as he does.
