#ManchesterGraduation | My time as a student at @manchesteruniversity has come to a close as I graduate cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science & French with a minor in Peace Studies. I've met the most amazing people, been to the most amazing places, and learned the most amazing things. All those cliché saying they told us as first-years came true. Thank you, #ManchesterUniversity and everyone who made my experience at Manchester.
Happy Everyone Who's Not With Their Mom Puts a Picture of their Mom on Social Media For the Likes Day! Mother's day is often hard for many. Shout-out to @onefishtwo for being everyone else's mom as well. Rather it's running around Grand Rapids so people at Manchester can have fresh injera and panatains or being able to find exactly what someone's looking for at pay-by-the-pound Goodwill. #MothersDay
Are Refugees a Threat to National Security: What Does Europe Think? It was so great to present my research with @mariam.ali at Manchester's Student Research Symposium! Thank you, @polslaw for teaching / advising us on our project. Hopefully, this is the first of many refugee-related research projects. Photos: @manchesteruniversity
@manchesteruniversity Peace Studies has given me so many amazing opportunities. It's taken me to places like Palestine, Atlanta, and NYC and connected me to amazing people in places like Nigeria, France, and Geneva. I'm so excited that I'll be able to give back to the program. Next year, I will be the Peace Studies Coordinator at @manchesteruniversity, the oldest Peace Studies program in the world!

50 years ago today, a bullet was shot from the spot this picture was taken, killing an unarmed 39-year old Black man. A leftist-radical who fought against the triple evils of American society: Poverty, Racism, and Militarism. 50 years later, Dr. King Jr. would be 89, the triple evils are even more entrenched in our society than they were that day. We have so much more to learn from MLK aside from the bare minimum of not being racist as we often think of him. We haven't done a great job fighting #Poverty , #Racism , and #Militarism by #MLK50 . Maybe by #MLK100 or #MLK150 ?
