A few days ago, I invited you to start building relationships by saying a simple “Hello”.
Amal Kassir encourages you to take it one step further by asking a stranger, “What’s you name?”
Watching the news, it seems like ethnic divides are ever-deepening. But how can we solve these complicated problems when each side lives in fear of the other? The answer is simple, argues Syrian-American poet Amal Kassir – it starts with, “What’s your name?”
Amal, a young Muslim-American and native Coloradan, found a platform for her voice growing up working in her family’s restaurant. She has been writing poetry since she was a child and has performed in eight countries, sharing her verse everywhere from youth prisons to orphanages to refugee camps.
