Fatima Ahmed is the new Operations Coordinator at CAIR-Chicago. Majoring in Political Science with a minor in Arabic Studies, she expects to attain her bachelor’s degree from DePaul University in 2015. While spending most of her time as a teen avidly involved in IHSA speech competitions as a competitor, she now works as an IHSA Speech Judge during the high school season. She also works at IQRA-foundation as a researcher and book editor, striving to help educate the Muslim youth. Previously heavily involved in mentoring and leadership programs, she hopes to use her past experiences to help educate and assist the Muslim youth to strive and live up to their full potential, so that they too can one day give back to their community. While politics and current events are her passion, in her spare time, she likes to read and travel, work on various culinary projects and stay up to date with her favorite sports teams.
