BIBI HIJAB BALKHI
In her community, Bibi advocates for justice in gender inequality, anti-racism, and any phobia applying to human life. She feels strongly about injustice towards women and ethnic minorities as these are the ones that have affected her and the people close to her the most.
She takes pride in educating the people around her—when people learn something about privilege and take steps towards changing themselves to be better, she feels as though her efforts can make a difference. Bibi believes that the greatest challenge facing young people today is persevering in the face of adversity. She joined the Tikkun Project as a youth researcher because she wants to see change and promote social healing. To her, waiting idly by and wishing society to change for the better will not do.
