“From the events of the past week, I'm more certain than ever before that we have all of those ingredients- people, money, ideas- right at our fingertips. And that's why I keep fighting and working to build OneAmerica to be a force to not only stand up in the hardest of times but change the narrative of immigrants and people of color to one of power, strength and resilience…”Read More
“In reality, the job you will get after graduation probably doesn’t exist today. Use your time in college to learn as much as you possibly can. Learn about the world around you, get out of your bubble. That’s what college is for. If you want to be a doctor, great. If you don’t, that’s fine too. The point is to be open to possibilities…”Read More

What makes Sanaya Set different from other subscription boxes is that there is a real sense of understanding and intention into each of these products.

“Immigrants- They Get the Job Done.”

My deepest hope is that the Sanaya Set and our mission will resonate with others who have felt like me: torn between our many identities.

Here’s to a future of defining our varied identities with pride, not fear.Read More
This win should be celebrated, and we should be thankful. We should be humbled by the efforts it took to narrowly defeat this monster. But most importantly, we should be moved to action. We should support black women. Listen to them, believe them, and we should elevate them. Elect them to leadership roles. We need to follow them. I am committed to doing so. Are you?Read More
As the mother of two daughters, it is important that I raise them to understand what it means to use their voice and not be afraid to stand up for what they believe.Read More
