Bucky’s Family: Karrar Al-Sawaedi

Meet Bucky’s Family member, Karrar Al-Sawaedi!



Karrar Al-Sawaedi is an 18 year old senior at Beaverton! In 2014,  Karrar and his family moved from Iraq to Oregon because his parents wanted him and his brother to have a “safer” life and a better education. When he first moved here, it was very difficult because he didn’t know any English. Because of his great teachers, he has been able to learn the language and can now speak pretty well. Karrar’s favorite class is math, and his favorite teacher is Ms. Fleischman.


Karrar went back to visit friends and family in Iraq last summer, and he wants to keep going back to visit but plans on staying here in Portland. If his country became safer, he would think about moving back more permanently.


At Beaverton, Something Karrar would like others to know about him is that he is a friendly guy and treats people like he wants to be treated. On the weekends and sometimes after school, Karrar works in construction. It’s hard work but he likes it. Outside of school, Karrar likes to play soccer, and it’s his favorite sport. He also loves Iraqi food and his favorite place to visit is Los Angeles. After high school, he plans to stay in Oregon and go to college to continue his education.
