Joseph and I recorded an interview for StoryCorps about that protest back in the November of the 2016 elections. You can download the audio file here.
I was mentioned in a New Yorker article titled “America’s Future is Texas.” Happy to hear that, and I agree! You can read the wonderful article here.
Deeds Not Words is an Austin non-profit started by Wendy Davis. Andrea, an intern there, interviewed me for a blog post in honor of World Refugee Day. You can read the article here!
I wish I lived in Philadelphia, so that I could have the opportunity to intern at FIRE, a non-profit organization that works to protect first amendment rights in universities across the country.
I was interviewed by Alex Morey for their website and it was a great honor to meet her.
I was honored when Mike Satcher interviewed me for The November 9 Project website. He flattered me endlessly and planted the idea of running for public office in my head. Maybe someday.
Here is the article.
The president of UT’s Undergraduate Law Review assembled this beautiful project exploring the impact of the 2016 election cycle on students of various religious backgrounds and their relationship with their faith. I was honored to take part in Brigit’s project and hope that the coming years will prove that this country will only grow stronger and more resilient in the face of adversity.
When I started writing this article I didn’t realize how much worse things were going to get. The Syrian people are experiencing a modern genocide, a near perfect mirror image of the ones the Kurds of Iraq suffered under Saddam.

But he doesn’t speak for all Texans, and I hope the leaders of our community continue to echo that point.
