Journeys

Aishat Sadiq’s ’19 “Healing Hearts and Building Bridges” proposal has been selected for the $10,000 Earlham Peace Prize in 2019.

Raised in Houston by her Nigerian immigrant parents, Sadiq says that she questioned how she could help combat statistics that indicate that the longer immigrants spend in the U.S., the worse their mental health becomes.

The project objectives are to host workshops for parents; raise awareness and educate through lectures, group discussions and reflection; provide access to free or reduced-price methods and services with local providers; and strengthen relationships between parents and their children through reducing parental stress and educating on effective methods of communication.

A student-athlete, Sadiq is on course to qualify for the NCAA DIII Outdoor Track and Field Championships in sprints from May 23-25 in Geneva, Ohio.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
