"Multiple Sclerosis

is my source of

 inspiration."

Hello, my name is Abrar Abulfaraj. When first diagnosed with MS, I embarked upon the journey of finding out if helping others would offer me solace and a new chance in life. Though giving up is always a persistent option, being helpful heralded me into new realms of giving hope to others. As people, we need support to reduce our pain and discomfort. My ambition is for patients and healthy people to learn how to live together and help one another. 

If You Care is a DC Web Fest 2018 Golden and Local Hero awards winner. It's my thesis project as an MFA candidate in Film and Electronic media at American University, Washington D.C. It has been an honor and pleasure working with my mentors throughout the process and learning from their experiences. 

I'm also appreciative of the effort that the If You Care' team has put into the project.
