It’s only at MYNA where everything that empowers me is established within my thoughts and actions. It’s only at MYNA where I am able to lead a Speech and Debate workshop with one of my best friends for 150 campers and then sit down to have a meaningful conversation about vulnerability. It’s only at MYNA where I can reconnect with friends I haven’t seen in five years, staying up talking until 3am, and then wake up for Tahajud and pray Fajr and have four of my closest friends jump into a twin sized bed in an unheated tent in the woods in Indiana because it just made sense. It’s only at MYNA where I can then stay up for the next forty hours on New Year’s Eve leading, connecting and adoring every second of camp. It’s only at MYNA where I can gain hasnanat for doing all of this, because my intention is for Allah’s sake. It’s only MYNA where I can take everything I have gained from this beautiful organization and start my adult life confidently. It’s only because of MYNA that I’m able to lead a week long Leadership Skills Camp for underprivileged youth. It’s only because of MYNA that I’m working at an internship at MUHSEN, Muslims Understanding and Helping Special Education Needs, in Arabic, “one who shows excellence and compassion” to refine their respite program. It’s only because of MYNA that I believe that I have tried to spend my youth under His mercy. And all of my accomplishments in the future insha’Allah, will all only be because of MYNA.
