The Courage to Continue
My name is Salaar, and I'm a junior here at W&M. I'm from Henrico, Virginia and I'm passionate about making a positive difference in my community. That's why I've spent almost a decade advocating for legislation, advising political campaigns, and engaging other young people in the political process. As someone who is legally blind and disabled, I've overcome my own challenges thanks to the people around me. Their support is why I am dedicated to standing up for young people, disabled folks, and communities of color. Although I found my calling in civic engagement, I want to share my story with people of all backgrounds and abilities to help them find their own path toward service.
