Here we have Aisha Osman in #Beaverton, #Oregon. “I am a 15 year old Somali- American. All my life I’ve had to deal with Islamophobia. Especially living in a time were groups a killing innocent people in the name of “Islam”. I’ve also been racially attacked due to the color of my skin. In May, I decided to write a letter to President Obama and told him about my life as an American Muslim. Last month I attended an Eid reception hosted by the White House. A few days before I left to Washington DC, I was asked to introduce President Barack Obama. Being a teen I thought my voice wasn’t going to be heard but it was. Inshallah with my experience I will keeping spreading the word of peace, love and unity”. #SomaliSideways.
