There is a pretty significant back story to this photo, but I’ll keep it short.  Marya was my freshman year roommate at Illinois. I had recently graduated from a high school with 25 other people in my entire class in a tiny Illinois farming community. I had never in my life interacted with someone from the Muslim faith prior to meeting Marya. I was close minded and ignorant, to say the least.  I’m a firm believer that people are placed in our lives for a reason, and Marya is no exception. This girl...singlehandedly opened my mind. My entire world view shifted because of her. Instead of focusing on our differences, I started realizing how much we are all the same. Black, white, gay, straight, transgender, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, atheist, agnostic, etc., - we are all human. I sincerely credit her for making me a better one.  The world would truly be a much better place with more Maryas. I am so unbelievably grateful to have her as a life long friend and my numero uno hype girl now. Thanks Mar Mar for our lunch date! You matter to me more than you will ever know. πŸ’“  P.s....can’t wait for our Oregon date ;)
