Sabah Ahmed Hathaway was born in Bangladesh, raised in Iran and Queens, New York. As an immigrant, woman of color, and a Muslim, she aspires to bring communities of different backgrounds together.
She acknowledges the fact that she resides on stolen Cayuga land. She believes that building bridges between different communities and organizations will make a society stronger. It will help people understand each other on many different platforms. She believes that in order to decolonize a society, that you must first decolonize your mind.

She firmly believes that our youth are our future, and we need to invest in educating them with real and factual history.
