On Today's Episode.……

Mechanical engineer, social advocate, and writer Yassmin Abdel-Magied discusses redefining the narrative and views on young Muslim women.   Eleanor and Yassmin discuss how Yassmin has set out to do the things that she wants to do, rather than go along with the expectations deemed by society around her.

As a young Muslim women Yassmin faces unconscious bias and racism in her line of work as a mechanical engineer where she is surrounded primarily by white males. Yassmin is a force to be reckoned with and has proven time after time that it is possible to stand out and be who you want to be as well as do what you want to do in life.

 

About Yassmin

  • She is mechanical engineer by profession, amatuer boxer, and race car enthusiast
  • 2015 winner of the Queensland Young Australian Of the Year Award
  • Yassmin advocates for the empowerment of youth, women, and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Yassmin founded the non-profit organization Youth Without Borders at age 16 and today at age 25 she is a passionate advocate for young Muslim women.
  • The Truth About Racism is a documentary that Yassmin filmed last year that covers the neuroscience behind racism and bias.
  • Recently started an organization called MUMTAZA which empowers women of color to reach positions of power and influence

 

Takeaways

  • Live your own story- choose what you want to do versus following what everybody else is doing
  • Consciously choose to believe your dreams are possible- First you need to consciously make the decision you’re going to do something and then figure out how you’re going to execute.
    • Don’t let doubt negate your ideas or dreams
    • Make your dreams achievable by breaking them down into smaller steps to get there

Within Yassmin’s line of work and organizations she has started, she has encountered criticism. Typically if you are a women, who is young, black, Muslim etc, you will most likely be told you are wrong and that you shouldn’t have the opinions that you have. Yassmin’s goal is to bring light to these racial issues and be an advocate for the empowerment of young diverse women.
