Allen's story with CHI began in 2014 when he stepped in for one of his friends to work as an interpreter. Since then, he has continued to interpret for us and works alongside our medical team to perform eye examinations.
He says that this job is very rewarding and makes him feel like a "respectable guy." He shared that the steady source of income that he receives from CHI has been "life-changing, " and through his work with CHI, he has been able to better support his wife and daughter.
Outside of his work with CHI, Allen is a teacher, plumber, and carpenter. In the future, Allen has aspirations to continue in the medical field or in the academic world. He hopes to one day study English and get a Master’s Degree to be able to teach at a University.
