We must start building tunnels before we expect people to see the light at the end of them.
— Ahmed for The Huffington Post
Every poem I write, every picture I capture, and every story I share is a personal letter to the bomb that visited my home nine years ago. I want to bring together individuals of seemingly opposing views and ideologies.
— Ahmed for Adobe Project 1324
This [hate infused] rhetoric has driven the media’s portrayal of refugees, which makes it important for people like Badr to stand up and tell a different story.
— Casey Tolan, Fusion
