South Atlantic 2018 Winter Camp

Throughout the past couple of years, I have realized that in the midst of all the changes happening in my life, there has always been one constant, and that is MYNA and what it means to me. This organization is provided me with not only a safe space, but also a brave space. It has given me a platform to express myself and friends all over the nation that have become family. Through MYNA, you meet people that understand and respect where you are coming from and your background. You find people that just get it and are there for you unconditionally. People who love you and support you for being you.

In the era of a new message, the time when Islam was first introduced, they were the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) greatest companions. In every state of Islam––the trials and the successes, the defeats and the victories––they were the people who showed great strength of unity and fearlessness in the way of Allah (SWT). They were the people who firmly stood with our beloved Prophet (PBUH), who laid their lives for he prosperity of this divine message. 

They were the stars in our Prophet’s orbit. 

And they are the lives and legacies that will be explored this winter.
