Your State Representatives
State Representative Tahany H.
“I am strong in my community by helping others and modeling positive behaviors.”
Why Tahany H. was Nominated:
“Tahany is willing to educate others when she see’s injustices being done at school. As OHS Muslim/American population has risen, and students with hijabs have become more common, Tahany started to see more students with incorrect or misguided information. She helped form the MASA (Muslim American Student Association) at Oswego High School as a way to celebrate the Muslim/American culture, but to also bring awareness to the student body. When you know more about your fellow students, you are less likely to engage in bullying. Her [Tahany’s] club held after school meetings where kids from all backgrounds could come and learn more about Muslim/Americans. It was well received and attended. Tahany’s willingness to bridge a cultural gap is one example of many in regards to her high moral character.”

Fear tells us that we’re about to go through something difficult without guidance, and that we are alone. It tells us we won’t make it through to the other side. And, most of all, when a glimmer of light does show up as hope, fear is right there to tell us it’s not worth moving towards. Fear loves it when we don’t move.
Don’t hold yourself back from your greatness just because you’ve made some mistakes or because other people – or life – has hurt you.
The older we get, the easier it is to look back and identify times when we didn’t act as cool as we thought we were.
