I had the humbling opportunity to be a part of the Fiverr A Year of Do Campaign shot by Platon! You can see my video above and watch my ad on the subway! 2018 has been a crazy ride of self-realization and development. I can pin down 2018 as the year in which the quotes that I had saved, the ones that sounded really nice, began to make real sense. I’m taking chances, and building new habits while also getting rid of old ones. Indeed, thus far, I have made 2018 a year of taking emotional risks.
Take the risk. Take the chance. Put your heart and soul into it, because when you put your soul into it, you will become what you’ve always dreamed. You yourself will become a legend.
A huge shoutout to Fiverr for doing advertising right. I had no idea what the ad would look like and I was incredibly nervous about the outcome. It’s hard to see hijab-wearing Muslims portrayed as just normal Americans. But, Fiverr saw me as a normal American and chose a quote (by the way not something I said, but TOTALLY my motto of 2018) that showed absolutely no context of race or religion.
THIS is what we need.
THIS is what acceptance looks like.
THIS is what understanding looks like.
Thank you, Fiverr!
