Nagia E. Moharram is a Contributing Feature Writer for Texas Muslim Women's Foundation (TMWF), a non-profit civic organization, founded by Muslim women, that empowers, promotes and supports ALL women and their families through education, outreach, philanthropic, and social services. TMWF's programs engage all members of the community; i.e., women, men, seniors, youth, and families. TMWF strives to strengthen ties between all communities through cross-cultural education and interfaith dialogue.
Nagia is excited about becoming a Power Blogger for Plaid for Women. Plaid's underlying theme of #NoMeanGirls resonates with Nagia. She understands the critical need for inclusiveness and respect to strengthen and support women of all ages in "sisterhood."
Nagia's Montessori training helped her learn about human development. Her subsequent work as an educator of young children, ages 3 to 6, confirmed what she learned through parenting her own children: we are all basically the same, and, yet, we must strive to respect and nurture our individual differences that give us our unique identities.
Nagia enjoys writing about parenting, interfaith, multiculturalism, and mindfulness. She seeks to be a source for good and positivity. Nagia believes that promoting and supporting the self worth of individuals and the importance of respect and empathy among family members is the basis of caring, safe, and peaceful homes and healthy, thriving, and productive communities. Which is why Nagia greatly appreciates being involved with TMWF and Plaid for Women as both organizations are working for the betterment of individuals as well as society at large.
