Statements from the Board
My passion is helping our community become economically stable and viable long term. To empower those, not only in our community, but globally have access to information and opportunities that will put them in the best position to succeed in life. From my own experience, I understand what it means to be on the lower rung of the social caste system, to be a minority in a country that doesn’t favor the color of your skin and uses it against you, uses it as justification for why you don’t deserve equal rights and equal access! I know first hand what it means to be Black and Muslim in America. It is now my focus to use my knowledge, my experience and the lessons I’ve learned from my own mistakes, to empower those around me, to help them find strategic success; to do everything within my power to keep those around me from making the same mistakes I’ve made and suffering the consequences of the same. As a Felon in the United States, it is my goal to show those around me, with my action and by example, that nothing can stop you from being successful and having a positive impact on the world you live in if you are armed with the right vision and determination!
Working with troubled youth, most of which come from within the African American community, has given me an eye-opening perspective into the different types of ingenuitive teaching methodologies, time, care and dedication that an educator must put in with this class of students to be able to reach them in an impactful manner that spurs lasting results in the student’s life.
Affordable housing is a great concept, a great idea; however, like many concepts, execution is where things become a challenge. With cumbersome rules and procedures to access most affordable housing programs due to the government funding involved in a lot of these program(s), those who need it most are often excluded from access to the scarce and much needed resources available. Due to the abundance of need and the often strained budgets of these programs, even if you do qualify for these programs, the wait to actually gain access to the program can take months, sometimes even a year or more. It is my goal to be able to develop better programs and initiatives that address this issue from the bottom up. Through financial literacy training, career training, job placement and access to real affordable housing that allows the person or family in need to be able to have a stable consistent home while they save for their future and put themselves in a better position for success in life is not only a goal of mine, it is a passion!
