“Many of my peers are going to be doctors or engineers and they’re going to help save and protect lives. Others become lawyers or politicians and help reform our society and government. And countless others will have a profound and distinct effect on the world through pursuing their own passions. That’s part of being a Muslim as well, finding how you can change the world, how you can make the world a better place by doing your own thing. My passion is photography, and I hope to use my passion to impact my community in the best way I can.”
