Born to Bangladeshi immigrant parents, My family immigrated to the United States when I was just under a year old. I grew up in Hamtramck. My children also have the privilege to grow up here. I've watched as my community grew and changed and made room for more refugees, immigrants, asylees, and yes, even hipsters. Hamtramck is a 2.2 sq mile city, that contains the entire world.
There are many challenges my community faces. I'm privileged to be working with an organization that helps combat food insecurity in my community, just one of the many challenges Hamtramck faces. I want to do so much for my community, and I hope you'll come along with me for the journey.
