CHELSEA-The transition to a new country is tough for any immigrant, but even more so for refugees. Many refugees are forced to flea their home country in fear of mistreatment and death, and often arrive to the US from a life of chaos, camps and abuse.  Reporter Jessica Kenney introduces us to a Chelsea resident who came to this country as a refugee many years ago and is now offering a helping hand to new refugees.  He understands the insupportable situations they came from and the importance of learning English in order to break through feelings of insecurity and isolation.
