UMD senior Hatim Qadri believes that, as a Muslim in America, you need to look forward with positivity.
That's why he's willing to answer any questions put to him about his faith and culture, even, when he says, someone's trying to corner him.
All this week, members of the Muslim Student Association will be sponsoring events aimed at making connections between Muslim and non-Muslim students on campus, and to foster that positivity, understanding and kindness.
"I'm representing myself and ... to some people, the whole religion." ~ Hatim Qadri
