Featured Highlight: Sawsan Abuosbie

Sawsan Abuosbie got involved with Horizon after some of her friends from MDA started attending Horizon Camp. This upcoming summer with be her fifth year attending camp. Sawsan's favorite part of camp is that most people don't have a phone signal on the camp site. She says, "it's amazing to see everyone come together as a community and we only have each other, like one big family."


During the rest of the year, Sawsan stays involved with the Horizon community. She is a member of the Camp Committee and helps plan a fun-filled week. Also, this past fall, she gave a speech about her involvement with Horizon at the Dallas fundraiser. Sawsan tries to attend as many fundraisers as she can throughout the year and also works to recruit her friends and people who "have an open mind and a big personality to add to our Horizon family."


Nate, Sawsan, and Justin

Outside of Horizon, Sawsan is "a college student who loves to blog and hang out with friends." She is extremely extroverted and social and loves advocating for equality for people with disabilities. She is the second oldest of seven children so she frequently babysits her younger siblings who she loves to death.
