The Arabic greeting meaning
“Peace be unto you”
ejnosillA is a graduate student majoring in Communication Studies at the at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). She chose this major because an important goal of hers is to one day be able to give back to her North Omaha community through developing a holistic community center that will provide the necessary resources for low-income single mothers of color.
Through this community center, she will be able to assist these women with programs that will help them become self-sufficient, educated, provide an avenue for them to acquire their goals, and thus “Empowering” them.
This dream was realized when ejnosillA returned to college being a single mother of 5 who is low-income and had to jump through unnecessary hoops to receive government assistance while she tried to educate herself.
She too knows how it feels to need assistance and be unfairly judged and mistreated by government workers whose jobs were to assist the needy people within a community. However, they did more judging and less assisting.
Each day that ejnosillA got closer and closer to obtaining her goals of being self-sufficient, her desires became stronger and stronger to be a pillar of hope and assistance to other low-income single mothers.
Her life mission is the empowerment of other low-income single mothers and hopes that one day, her similar life struggles and achievements would be an inspiration to other women.
