The SOMA SLM conference has been incredibly inspirational and productive. I’m grateful to @the_acom for their tremendous support. There are probably 1000 reasons why ACOM was the perfect choice for me & one of these reasons is how supportive our administration has been of our participation in leadership. Not only are we present and actively discussing policies that directly affect our profession, but our Dean is also here and a major voice in these discussions. All of this said and it’s only day 2. I can’t wait to see the next few days unfold! #SOMAinChicago #AOAHoD #AOAAnnual18 #ACOMSOMA #presidentandnlotakechicago

✨19.07.18 This post may be perceived as rather controversial and sensitive. But it is becoming a real concern to me. Marriage is a beautiful partnership and it is encouraged in most religions. As a young African -Caribbean Muslim women, I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of cultural and societal pressures in some of our communities which may rush young muslim women into “getting married”. It actually makes me so sad. There is more to life than “marriage”. Young muslim women need their communities to support them in following their dreams and ambitions. In my opinion. Independence is everything. Getting married is not guaranteed to happen in everybody’s life, just like other things one may aspire for or want to achieve. We don’t even know if we will live till tomorrow. But that is okay, not everything we want, will happen or plan out the way we would hope and pray for. I strongly believe, that if something is meant to happen, it will and no one can stop it. Idk if it is just me. But I have constantly been hearing this new catchphrase “when I am married then I will....”. Why not do the things you have always wanted to do that are permissible in the Islamic faith, just go for it, enjoy your life. Don’t let people or society limit you or put you in a box. Be true to yourself always. Marriage itself is a long term commitment which one can choose to prepare for in various ways. For example, you don’t just take an exam without revising. Preparation can be key in building a strong foundation. __________ To my muslim sisters and all women out there, you are a queen. Remember you deserve the best, always. Try and do what makes you happy, life is very short and unpredictable.

I'm sure this homeless man walked all night long, looking for a place to sleep. Somewhere where he could feel comfortable, somewhere he could feel accepted.

-Alice Walker. Activism has never felt more significant than it does in today’s time. It gives us a space to consolidate efforts and to give a voice to the less privileged, and the minorities of the world. • • • • • • #followback #followforfollow #likeforlike #photooftheday #tagforlikes #follow4follow #like4like #look #instalike #igers #picoftheday #instadaily #instafollow #followme #activism #feminist #feminism #equality #equalrights #minority #womenempowerment

Rape set backs..: so angry with life. When you keep working hard to get nowhere especially when you'd worked so hard all your life to rise up in life and against perpetual racism and in a profession not typically open to women. When other people don't get it. When every thing is ripped away from you not just once but 6 times. How many times do you forgive a world bent on destroying you, and more so where do you get the strength to keep rising. I no longer aspire for what most people want - in fact I could die tomorrow and it wouldn't phase me. Sometimes the walking are so broken they'd be better off not in this world. Moving on for them might mean moving on from this world. #ondeathanddying #suicideforest #rapevictim #rapesurvivor #rapeculture #ihatelife #ihatemyself #ihatepeople #myuniversity #university #universitylife #trigger #racism #complicated #complex #minoritywomen #minority #setbacks

What makes liberal democracy [beautiful] is its openness to physical, cultural and intellectual diversity. Mainstream, marginal, majority or minority, every citizen should have the opportunity to learn, think critically, and participate equally within a democracy. #democracy #diversity #change #minority #think #participate Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels

Meet our guest @mlkidney Lynette Luckers... founder of The Marion Luckers Kidney Foundation in honor of her mother. This foundation was created in 2011 in honor of Marion Lucker who had Kidney Disease . Kidney disease can impact anyone of our family members at any time. Marion Luckers suffered from a heart attack in 2004 and as a direct result, she was placed on dialysis for five years to prevent fluid from forming around her heart. This process was very strenuous for both Marion and her family. Although she suffered for quite a while she always had a fighting spirit. The foundation serves as a support for family members who have a love one suffering from kidney disease or who has lost a family member or a friend who suffered from this disease. Our goals include educating the public on kidney awareness and prevention, organ donor process, and supporting research on kidney disease. We will provide financial assistance to active dialysis patients who meet our eligibility requirements. Through philanthropy and charity we can make a difference!

NATIONAL | REGIONAL | Assam likely to be affected as MHA relaxes LTV procedure for minorities from neighboring countries Details: At a time when Assam is being rocked with protest against controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, the Centre’s decision to extend religiously prosecuted Bangla , Pak national’s staying terms in India and relaxes VISA procedures for prosecuted minorities would likely to trigger further protests in Assam Assam is divided over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill because it proscribes the deportation or imprisonment of Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, Parsis and Christians of Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan who entered India without valid documents before December 31, 2014. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) announced that it will ease the process of obtaining long term visas (LTV) for minorities in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The plan, which reduces the time limit for security clearance from 45 days to 21 days, will be valid for the ‘persecuted minorities’ of the mentioned countries. #Assam #AssamNews #MHA #visa #LTV #minorities #minority #longtermvisa #indianews #pratidintime

At #Tbilisi -Georgia, representing Canada in a #ogp Global Summit. My dreamy 7yo self would never believe this could happen. I’ve met ministers, prime ministers, and #UN administrators who are trying to empower everyone to live better lives. The task is hard, but we will continue fighting for more participation, #inclusion , and impact. From someone who is a #minority in many categories, and who comes from a humble family, the #dreams of my 7yo kept me fighting against all odds. I’m exhausted, but would do it all over again. #thiagomoment #ogpgeorgia #opengov Em Tbilisi-Geórgia, representando o Canadá em uma Reunião Global sobre Governo Aberto. Thiago com 7 anos de idade nunca acreditaria que isso pudesse acontecer. Eu encontrei ministros, primeiros-ministros e administradores da ONU que estão tentando capacitar todos para uma vida melhor. A tarefa é difícil, mas continuaremos lutando por mais participação, inclusão e impacto. De alguém que é uma minoria em muitas categorias, e que vem de uma família humilde, os sonhos do Thiago com 7 anos me mantiveram lutando contra todas as probabilidades. Estou exausto, mas faria tudo de novo.
BAYRAM. During Ramazan Bayram celebrations, Greek Pomak women of Glafki village in Northern Greece visit village’s graveyard to honor their relatives. The region of Pomakohoria (Villages of Pomaks), land of Greek Muslim minority of Pomaks, was isolated from the rest of Greece for 60 years with barriers constructed by Greek Government. Until 1996 when barriers stopped being used –and even today- locals were considered of being Greek civilians of second class while Turkey approached them and educated many of them in the Turkish ideals. One of the unspoilt corners of Greece -and eventually of Europe- with strong traditions and pure people! #xanthi #greece . © Stefanos Papaioannou
POMAK WOMEN. The region of Pomakohoria was isolated from the rest of Greece for 60 years with barriers constructed by Greek Government. Until 1996 when barriers stopped being used –and even today- locals were considered of being Greek civilians of second class while Turkey approached them and educated them in the Turkish ideals. The village of Miki is so proud for its customs and its identity. Locals insist of speaking the only-oral language of Pomak, they are extremely hospitable to the globetrotters who respect them and women of every age wear their traditional costumes every day. Unfortunately, due to high levels of unemployment, men have to immigrate to European countries as shipyard workers while women remain to the village to raise their children alone. A hard life for strong people! #xanthi #greece . © Stefanos Papaioannou
THE VILLAGES OF POMAKS. At Aise’s house in Ano Thermes, Pomakohoria where the Greek Muslim minority of Pomaks lives near the borders with Bulgaria. Due to crisis and economical issues, Aise and her 27-years old son had to return and settle to her parental house in the village and to deal with a conservative part of village’s inhabitants because in the past, she was in love with a Christian and she gave birth to their son. The region of Pomakohoria was isolated from the rest of Greece for 60 years with barriers constructed by Greek Government. Until 1996 when barriers stopped being used –and even today- locals were considered of being Greek civilians of second class while Turkey approached them and educated them in the Turkish ideals. Nowadays, in some villages locals still speak the only-oral language of Pomak and Greek and feel more Greek Pomak while in other villages, they feel more Turkish and speak the Turkish language. Feeling Greek Pomak, Aise has to strangle for her ideals and to deal as well, with the Turkish-oriented feelings and the nationalism of her neighbors. So powerful person and so heartbreaking story! #xanthi #greece . © Stefanos Papaioannou
