I work to strengthen progressive power at all levels of government by helping donors – big and small – to support the best and most promising LOCAL community-based organizations in key states – with a focus on youth and communities of color.

I am a community organizer with experience in political, electoral, and issue-based campaigns. I was born and raised in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious family in Milwaukee. I credit my strong belief in civic responsibilities and community-built power with social activism growing up, as well as coming of (political) age post-9/11 in a tight-knit American Muslim community with a history of educational outreach. In my first job after college, working in government affairs, I saw firsthand the consequences of political dis-engagement on the ability of minority communities to see their concerns taken up by elected officials. Identifying a need, I collaborated with community leaders to found Project Mobilize, an organization dedicated to increasing civic participation and representation from politically marginalized communities across Chicago. I directed strategic community outreach for the mayoral campaign in Chicago, mobilizing political support, money, and votes from across Middle Eastern, Asian, Arab, and Muslim American communities. More recently, I was campaign manager for a state representative race in Chicago and the second most diverse district in the country for a grassroots Asian American and Muslim American candidate. I am passionate about creating the authentic relationships and mutual investments between diverse communities that will be essential in the next 30 years as the U.S. becomes a minority-majority country. I firmly believe this job will be rooted in community organizing and driven by young people: paving the way for future generations to keep the baton moving forward.

Power naps work for me. I feel refreshed even after 15-20 minutes of eye shut.

I used to hate naps and feel that I am wasting my time but now I love it! I do it as often as I can especially during my morning commute.
