Let’s get one thing straight: No minority student should ever be told to change their name if they want to get a job upon graduation.
But it still happens, just like it happened to Jihad Abouhatab, now a 26-year-old technology risk consultant with Deloitte, when he was attending an unnamed local college.
Abouhatab, reports Technical.ly Philly, used that experience to cofound LAMP (Leadership Advancement Mentorship Program), a volunteer-led mentorship program for Muslim students.
“This is how minorities flourish,” Abouhatab told Technical.ly. “It’s how the Irish, Jews and Italians did it decades ago. By building businesses, becoming leaders and developing organizations and institutions.”-30-
