I study Middle East Studies, and Arabic, and currently work in the nonprofit field. I would like to continue and raise awareness and focus about the beautiful and positive religious and cultural practices in the Middle East, and North Africa.

I learned about Peaceful Tomorrows (PT) after researching the complexity of trials at Guantánamo Bay. I have been in communication with a former prisoner who was innocent, and never charged. I decided to explore the injustice further. I was so happy when I was told about PT, who acts as a leader, promoting peace and understanding in the face of tragedy. On 9/11, I lost my father, firefighter Douglas Miller. Through the years, I had focused on his acts of bravery in responding to the attacks. I wanted to demonstrate similar acts of bravery in my own way. I decided to study the Middle East, and North Africa, Islam, and terrorism. My education helped show me that I wanted to spread messages of forgiveness, and understanding, emphasizing that the terrible attacks were the actions of few, not the many.
