BOSTON – Last week, Enes Kanter Freedom officially became a U.S. citizen.
“I’m overwhelmed with emotion just writing these words: I, Enes Kanter Freedom, am proud to be a citizen of the United States of America, the land of the free, and home of the brave,” Freedom wrote in an essay for The Atlantic.
“That’s when America welcomed me with open arms,” Freedom wrote.
“For six long years, I was without a home. I know what it’s like for a people to have their freedom stripped away. And I know what it’s like to have my own freedom stripped away,” he wrote.
