Aakifa Chida
As a designer who is passionate about social activism, this project is based around my personal identity as a Muslim growing up in the West post 9/11 and the extent to which people are unaware about my community's suffering. The objective of this project is to bright light to people who have been left in the dark, and speak up about those whose voice has been taken away. This project was the final assignment in my bachelor's degree, and one which I intend to continue onwards with outside of academic parameters. As designers, we learn the importance and impact of the work we create - this project was my expression of what I wished to do with the skills I had learned. 

"Designers can actually change the world for the better by making the complicated simple and finding beauty in truth. The more things you’re interested in, the better your work will be."
