Nurah is a wife, a mother, a mentor and an activist in her home city of Camden, New Jersey. She is an instructor/trainer and actively involved in the local political, social and educational movements that are currently underway.
Nurah’s passion is being of service to her community, with a strong focus on women and youth. She believes that too many of our youth are crippled by fear, feelings of inadequacy and insecurity. She stresses that, “Competence Breeds Confidence.” To that end, she encourages young people to move beyond their comfort zones, tackle new challenges and engage with new people. In that way, each small victory will be the foundation leading to even greater victories.
As an advocate for the women in her community, she recognizes how the legacies of poverty, abuse and addiction create distrust and disengagement in women. Therefore she strives to empower women with the healing value of self love, self knowledge and self awareness.
Nurah presently serves as the Program Coordinator of the M.A.L.L. Program (Multi Agency Life Line.) This program serves to divert youth from delinquent behavior by helping to establish new social norms and solid habits that can lead to success. She also co-facilitates the Camden Youth Forum whereby youth from within the city are trained to facilitate courtroom proceedings and adjudicate restorative justice to their peers. Nurah also serves as the Community Connections Coordinator of M.E.L. Center, Inc., where she facilitates programs, training and instruction that enrich, empower and engage the community.
