My name is Yusuf Zahurullah. I am a 14- year-old American Muslim living in Rockford, Illinois where I was born. I am currently a freshmen at Auburn High School. I am on the varsity soccer team and I also play tennis. I am a member of the Scholastic Bowl team and I will be secretary for Auburn’s Model UN club starting next year. My interests include history and political science, which is something in which I hope to make a career. This blog will be a journal of my thoughts and observations about my own community and the political face of our country as a whole from a Muslim teen’s perspective.
