Congratulations to Bushra Amiwala, Jetpac Fellow and candidate for Cook County, IL Commission. You can find her on the January 29, 2018 cover of TIME Magazine.

Bushra went into politics to change the narrative about Muslim women. She announced her intention to run for office to give “a voice to her underrepresented generation and culture.”

In Bushra’s words, “It was so exciting to see myself [on the cover], along with so many first-time female candidates…. and it feels really nice to have this community to share all the goods and bads with.”
