Business for the people

Money is important to Steve Deeloo. Really important. It’s a value the Northeastern Illinois University senior developed growing up with his family in Iraq with little to get by. And then living for nine years together as refugees in Jordan.

For Deeloo, money isn’t about being rich—it’s about freedom and survival.

Now on the verge of becoming the first member of his family to earn a college degree, Deeloo is proud of what his education can do for his family and his community.
