Our founder has experienced racism first-hand countless times throughout her life. As a young, middle-eastern girl growing up in America, Rajia has lived through random acts of horrible, unprovoked racial discrimination. Being told, “go back to your country,” and called a “terrorist” from random strangers are just some of the heinous examples to name a few.
