About Me: Hello, I am a specialized in Nation Building with a specialization in Africa and the Middle East. I have over 12 years experience in regards to International Social Work. I am involved via the internet in protection of Human Rights as the Middle East experiences their Arab Spring. I really don't like the term Arab Spring or Democracy building but they are the terms most often used to reference to what is happening in the Middle East and Africa. I am currently becoming friends with Nabila Ramandi. I am working to bring her to my community to speak. I am also pretty well acquainted with David Banks. I am politically active as an activist for Civil Rights and Disability rights in America. I have received two personally addressed letters from Governor Christi and Governor Cuomo. I am currently working towards a dual MA/JD in Diplomacy and International Law focused on Human Rights. I am also actively blogging and writing. I have been in discussion with Imam Yahya Hindi from George Washington University to co author a book regarding International Peace Building as well as organizing an Interfaith Event. I have been approached to write for the Arabian Gazette in Dubai and Oslo Times by their editors. Oslo Times editor has requested I serve as an editorial partner. Lori

    Hi Fatima,

    Thank you for your note. I was glad to see this. I have been so busy it almost slipped my mind that I joined this awesome web site. I am not sure why accept I have been a bit overwhelmed with several projects. I hope that will bring a lot to your group or network here as well as be a part of a network of people making a difference in the lives of those around the world.
