I am a 16-year-old activist and poet from Queens, NY. I feel extremely lucky to be surrounded by a plethora of different people, languages and cultures, as I believe diversity is a source of strength worth celebrating. I am an intersectional feminist and a fierce believer in increasing the representation of women’s interests, fighting against systems of oppression, and protecting the rights of people in marginalized communities. Issues I am passionate about include sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia and racism.
