Humanities Weekly strives to be the voice for the voiceless. Immigrants, minorities, and refugees are an underrepresented population that doesn't always receive the justice and equality they deserve. We hope to fix this by providing a platform where critical topics surrounding this population are discussed and we can illustrate the inequities they face, shifting the paradigm to create more opportunities for this population and reverse the continuation of these issues.
Dedicated. Authentic. Passionate.
As a high school student growing up in a nation where we're quick to ignore and suppress the voices of immigrants and minorities, I see the urgency for us as a country to empower those who don't have the opportunity to speak out. I strive to create a platform where we highlight these narratives and perspectives on critical and controversial topics in order to facilitate change in our society and stop the perpetuation of inequities and injustices.
I’m Maryam Ali, a high school student from Karachi, Pakistan. Living in a country where human rights challenges are prevalent has taught me firsthand that sharing stories and generating awareness is one of the best ways to advocate for change. Through writing about poverty, inequality, and access to basic needs in Karachi and other countries I hope to highlight stories that are too often left untold.
As a recent A-level graduate, I seek to express my discontent and infuriation for the lack of attention provided to the prolonged cries of numerous children, women, and other minorities. Through my works, I weave a meticulous tapestry of different narratives and invite you to unknot a new avenue of understanding, compassion, and collective responsibility.
As a rising senior in high school, I hope to channel my passion for social justice through writing and bringing awareness to global inequities.
I am a junior at Stanford OHS who lives in New Jersey. I enjoy reading,
drawing, and learning new languages.
I am Fevroniya (Fev) Barinova, a high school student in Massachusetts from Juodkrantė, Lithuania. Growing up in a country reconciling finally achieving independence with instability and corruption, I believe that sharing the stories of people, especially those who’s voices get lost in political agenda and violence, is one of the most powerful ways to advocate for change. I am particularly passionate about immigrant rights and public health.
I am Naimul Islam, a freshman from Bangladesh at Northwestern University. Coming from a country with the largest refugee crisis in the world, I have realized firsthand that I need to advocate for those with similar backgrounds by raising my voice. This adversity inspires me to work for education, development, advocacy, and sustainability. Through my writings, I want to help highlight inequities within underrepresented communities across the globe.
