I am the son of two Somali immigrants. I am a community activist, and a proud resident of South Minneapolis. I’ve spent my career working to empower people from underserved communities to excel in higher education, participate in government, and organize for our shared future. Through my experience, I’ve come to understand that despite our very different backgrounds, we are all united by a common belief in fairness, equity and inclusion. Divided, our impact is limited. United, we rise together.
I decided to run for the Minnesota Senate in District 62 because I believe in the power of our communities to address the challenges of today and create a brighter future for tomorrow. I hope to earn your support in this election as we unite our voices for a more prosperous Minnesota.
