Amina Tokakova is a sophomore at Seton Hall University pursuing a degree in International Relations with honors and triple minoring in French, Economics, and Middle Eastern Studies. Amina interned at the International Rescue Committee where she became even more inspired to support and advocate for refugees and minorities. She is very excited to be a part of the CAIR NJ family and to contribute to the mission of the organization! She wants to become an immigration lawyer and advocate for those whose voices are unheard and ignored socially, legally, and economically. She believes CAIR NJ can help her in her personal and professional aspirations since the organization gives her an opportunity to connect with Muslim activists and to learn more about the difficulties the ummah faces daily.
