I moved to the United States of America with my family at the age of thirteen. I spent my teenage years attending James Madison High School and working long hours at the local deli to support my family. Four years later, between my jobs, I studied at CUNY City College and graduated to become a mechanical engineer, focusing on environmental protection projects. Over the years, I recognized that our community faced huge obstacles and I could not allow myself to be a silent observer: I got involved and spent the next twenty years learning.
As a certified First Aid and CPR instructor, not only did I hold free classes certifying over 500 members of our district, but I was also at the forefront of disaster relief efforts city-wide with the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). After recognizing that there was a lack of diversity and representation in our law enforcement, I co-founded the Pakistani American Law Enforcement Society to build better bridges between police departments and our community. In addition, with the help of local organizers, I co-founded the Pakistani American Youth Society (PAYS) and Muslims Giving Back, determined to build multi-ethnic coalitions through empowering our youth and to reflect and celebrate the values of diverse, working-class people.
Through it all, I’ve been a resident of this neighborhood. I have worked in various areas with different communities all over the district. This is where my kids were born, raised and go to school. I have a vested interest in this race and believe that an opportunity to represent this community as District Leader could be an opportunity for us all to prosper.
