MU Delta Alpha Beginning
While she was attending the University of Texas at Dallas, Samira discovered there was not a space for her and other Muslim women to celebrate their faith and professional goal. She worked tirelessly until she established Mu Delta Alpha, the first professional Muslim sorority in Texas .
Through Mu Delta Alpha, Samira established the Junior Mu Delta Alpha Leadership Academy for girls. This is a program for girls between the ages of 12-16 gain first hand knowledge of leadership, professionalism, mentorship and service.
Samira’s dream of helping young girls who have lost everything was realized when Mu Delta Alpha purchased the land and facility for the Sakina Home for Girls in Kenya. The Sakina Home will open its doors in 2021 to house orphaned girls and provide the safety and education every girl deserves. Mu Delta Alpha hosts an annual leadership summit for girls.
For the past six years, Samira has orchestrated this event from start to finish, recognizing Muslim women and their achievements. Samira’s belief that every woman and girl has the right to live their life to its fullest both personally and professionally and the perseverance she has displayed in order for this to happen has led to countless speaking engagements. Samira is not only a groundbreaking leader, she seeks to assist girls so they understand their true potential.
