I am a Sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences pursuing a double major in Philosophy and Africana studies here at Penn. I am involved in the Muslim Students Association, a Co-Chair of Penn Sapelo, a Black Muslim student organization on campus, and a member of the Excelano Project, Penn first and only spoken word collective. While in the ISP program, I began to think seriously about what it would mean to truly engage two different disciplines with one another to think through complex problems and fill in intellectual gaps. I am very interested in utilizing philosophy to work through some of the complex questions about identity, race, and justice that Africana poses to its students. I am also interested in finding a place for human experience and embodied knowledge within philosophy, and making intellectual room for more philosophers of color, women philosophers, and practicing muslims in both fields.
