Topic: Working with Oklahoma Muslims

Although I have lived in Oklahoma most of my life, I have had very little interactions with Oklahoman Muslims and as a result I knew very little about this community. However, going to college exposed me to many different types of people and to the struggles and prejudices that American Muslims face within their own country. I have learned a great deal about the Muslim community and continue to learn as part of my International Studies major and Arabic minor and through historical and cultural classes, but also through international clubs. This has motivated me to be more involved with this community and so this summer I will be interning with CAIR-OK, and organization that seeks to increase awareness of Oklahoma Muslims and educate people past the biases the media presents.
