Hey! I am currently a senior at Irvington High School and I've been working with Arif for over two years. In that time, I have been a part of and witnessed parts of the community that are beautiful and uplifting while other parts are demeaning and oppressive. I was first introduced to Arif's vision to help the unhoused community thrive in the midst of the pandemic. Then, when we realized there was little that could be done on the outside, Arif made the decision to run for city council in an attempt to solve the issues that impact Fremont the most from a position that needed a new perspective. Being on this team lets me participate and influence change in areas of my city that matter to me. My future holds a path in a similar nature with the goal to serve in the public sector. I also enjoy playing with my dog and reading an enormous amount of books.
