Guest Speaker for August 27th: Adah Shair

Born and raised in the Kashmir valley, Adah moved to the United States to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Civil engineering. During her time in college, she became involved with the Interfaith Center on campus and the UNF chapter of Muslim Students association. Her involvement with the interfaith center led her to the National Better Together campaign initiated by Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), a non-profit organization aimed at building cooperation across lines of difference. Adah became one of the eleven National Better Together Coaches for the year 2014-2015. She currently works with HDR Inc. as a bridge engineer and intends to specialize in the field of sustainable engineering. Despite the technical nature of her work, she remains inseparable from interfaith work and dialogue. Adah currently presides as the chair of Jax Interfaith Young Professional’s council and envisions interfaith cooperation to become the very fabric of Jacksonville.
