Aspiring to Give Muslims a Political Voice
Name Nisar Chaudhry
School New York University
Major Political Science and International Relations
“For my community of Pakistani-Americans, and for the larger Muslim-American community, I envision greater political activism and to have a voice that will cause greater ripples in matters of social and political relevance; I understand that this vision cannot be achieved as rapidly as we hope but it must start with the education of our community. Just as the executives of Tailwind have had the opportunity to affect change I look forward to doing the same in the future along with my peers. Muslim-American youths do not lack the intellectual drive or passion to pursue higher education but rather, for most, it is the financial constraints, and only the empowerment and education of the youth of today will help us to build a more resourceful community tomorrow.”
