How do you model strong leadership?

“As a black, immigrant, Muslim woman, I am blessed to have achieved so many goals in this country that I could never have dreamed of achieving. I have always wanted to be a force for positive change in my community, and to use my voice to advocate for those changes my fellow community members wish to see.

I believe we need to come together to lift up women and girls of color — whose voices are often left out — until we see that women from all backgrounds are equally represented in education, government, the workplace, and everywhere in between.

As a human being operating at my highest and best, I practice compassion, spirituality and joy. I trust my inner voice to guide me toward a clear path of acceptance and equality for all.”
