Bio

My goal is to one day in the near future open an all-girls orphanage, in order to help young girls who grew up in similar situations as myself, and give them the much needed push towards a better future. In doing so, I hope to take part in teaching children to do what they can, further spread the desire for teaching.

My goal is to one day in the near future open an all-girls orphanage, in order to help young girls who grew up in similar situations as myself, and give them the much needed push towards a better future. In doing so, I hope to take part in teaching children to do what they can, further spread the desire for teaching. Educating those who do not have the means to learn is, to me, solving the root of the problem. Those who are uneducated are not able to find careers for themselves, which ultimately leads to poverty. This lack of education then creates a whole list of other problems like population increase, crime, and disease that traps people into the perpetuating cycle. I have seen firsthand effects of systematic oppression while living and teaching in the shanty towns of Morocco. I also have taught in the New Brunswick Elementary and Middle School and have seen what this cycle looks like in America. I taught them in Spanish because most only knew English, since knowing more than one language enhances cognitive thinking.

I took the time to learn and teach a variety of topics and languages for the sole purpose of bridging the gap and creating a more tolerant environment around me.Language allows me to understand the every lasting effects of oppression, stratification and exploitation as a women of color. Ignorance is what keeps children from understanding the lessons in their classroom, and what keeps adults from providing the necessary means to educating the future generations. I am lucky to be where I am now, and due to my thankfulness for my upbringing I want to spread that opportunity to the less privileged, because in the end we are all deserving of education, a basic human right.

At Rutgers University at the African, Middle Eastern, South Asian Language and Literature Department (AMESALL) not only was the only Arabic tutor, I also worked as an assistant to the administrator and worked closely with the Urdu instructor. I am also Arabic translation certified. I have also worked in urban communities we
