Hello Munawwar!

Updated: May 23

Kicking off these Hellos with the team members! Introducing Munawwar, 25, based in the US!


1. What inspires you the most?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Reading, learning people’s stories, seeing others live their best lives, and wanting to be that example for the younger generation in my family and community⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. How have you spent the last year?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I finished my degree, travelled (finally!), relocated twice, met many new friends and collaborators on projects surrounding the needs of Uyghur people, missed and mourned, and found a job in a field I enjoy :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3. What two subjects do you love talking about?

I am unlikely to shut up about anything related to Uyghurs in any way, but currently: 1. translating literature! and 2. there’s no point to cultural preservation without advocacy and there’s no point to advocacy without cultural preservation. Also... books and tv shows⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you want to plug anything?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
