Why I'm Running
What makes America great is the belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or how funny their name sounds, can achieve their dreams. I am living proof of the ‘American Dream’ and the American ideals of opportunity and equality for all. I believe that there are immense opportunities for success and achievement within education. I am extremely passionate about the value of education.
My experience as a refugee coming to the United States, as a young man with nothing but a dream and hope for a better future, inspired me to seek for school board service and bring a fresh perspective as a parent and new American. I have achieved a lot in terms of education and thriving with success within my career. I am motivated to do all I can to give back to the country and community that welcomed me two and a half decades ago. I strive to be a role model for our students.
The past year has been one of the most challenging times for all of us. In order to find solutions to these challenges we face, we need new approaches, ideas and voices. We need to be able to work collaboratively with open mindedness and respect. Our success is entirely dependent upon our ability to work well as a whole and collaborate effectively. We are as good and as strong as the sums of our parts as a community. I trust that I can count on you to elect me so that I can bring a unique perspective that will broaden our scope of understanding. You can certainly count on me to be that unique voice of reason, balance and understanding that brings unity and fresh ideas that our district needs.
I ask you for your vote and support.

"I chose to run for the presidency at this moment in history because I believe deeply that we cannot solve the challenges of our time unless we solve them together - unless we perfect our union by understanding that we may have different stories, but we hold common hopes; that we may not look the same and we may not have come from the same place, but we all want to move in the same direction - towards a better future for of children and our grandchildren.”
