Introducing Ajinur, a Legal Writer and Tarim volunteer based in Washington, DC!
1. What inspires you the most?
My anam (great-grandmother), may she rest in peace & power, because of her unbreakable will and powerful compassion. As I find myself more disenchanted with the world, the sacrifices and struggles of good people standing against injustice and oppression no matter the cost inspires me to keep going.
2. How have you spent the last year?
I was admitted into the DC Bar in January and have been getting experience in business immigration as a Legal Writer. I've been exploring healthy and positive ways to engage in my Uyghur community. And I've been trying to get better at adulting.
3. What are your short term goals?
Be more courageous; do more work that I'm passionate about like asylum and advocacy; and read and learn more about Uyghur history, culture and language.
