Ihan Omar has broken boundaries! While many people are not quite sure how Donald Trump would handle his term in office, it is nice to see an African woman become a lawmaker in the US.
On Tuesday, the 34year-old was sworn into the Minnesota House of Representatives. She became the first Muslim, Somali-American legislator in the United States of America.
In an interview with VOA, Omar revealed…
”It sort of provides a counter narrative to say ‘well all is not bad’…if someone like Ilhan who has all of the odds against her can succeed, then we are able to see that as a country we do have a balance of both good and bad and that we just have to figure out a way to come together and make sure we are amplifying the voices of good”
Are you inspired by Ilhan Omar’s win?
