Video: Fatima on her Civil Engagement Efforts

Fatima talks about the start of the Illinois Association of Hair Braiders (IAOHB), an organization where she is currently serving as President. Before this organization, hair braiding was not recognized as a profession in the state of Illinois, and law mandated that each hair braider have a cosmetology license. Now, hair braiders are able to operate as their own entity separate from cosmetic professions.
