Sandra Akkad remembers the day when Muslims became the "other". It was her daughter's fourth birthday: September 11, 2001. From that time on, Sanda and her family have observed and experienced a rise in anti-Muslim sentiment that has reached an all time high today. Now more than ever, Sandra believes we must fight the tendency to retreat in fear from those who seem different than us out. Instead, we must proactively seek out ways to connect, listen, and embrace each other as humans.
Sandra Akkad is a Muslim Palestinian American woman and a Native New Mexican educator and entrepreneur. Education has always been her passion and she has always been a fervent believer that education leads to empowerment. She is the founder and director of “Tutor-Me”, a learning and enrichment center where she teaches, motivates, and reinforces students in all subjects from K-12. Additionally, she has had the privilege of being an adjunct instructor at UNM where she teaches “Children in Genocide”, a Peace Studies department course. Her time as an educator has brought her to the fore of issues pertaining to cultural identity, relevancy, and diversity. She co-founded “The Red Hearted” initiative which was designed to provide youth of all backgrounds a platform that encourages and engages them in frank discussion aimed at building connections, dismantling stereotypes, and promoting tolerance.
