EXERPT

“As a quality education can be an equalizer for disadvantaged populations, many are robbed of the right to receive an equitable education. Through research and self-guided exploration, I have discovered what the impact of social structures, educational historical legacy, gender roles, motivation and economic status has on a student’s educational experience and academic achievement. As the achievement gap continues to grow due to the thriving disconnect between marginalized students and equitable educational opportunities; there must be change to educational policies, curriculum, methodologies and approaches in order for positive change to manifest in the academic achievement of students. My passion is to fight for those changes.”

A BIT OF PRAISE

“This book completely changed the way I encourage and motivate my students in their educational journey. It’s thought-provoking and offers practical methods to enhance ones love for education. A must-read for the education-based professional!”

~Tarah Burnette, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Omar came to speak at Queens University of Charlotte to share his passionate educational journey with my pre-service teachers during our Needs of Diverse Learners class. He started by introducing himself and engaging my students by sharing his amazing story that opens up the first chapter of his book, For the Love of Education: The Power of an Awakened Mind. My students were completely mesmerized by his charismatic story telling and inspired that he had overcome so many obstacles to reach his dreams. Omar was generous enough to lead my students in an interactive activity from the Theater of the Oppressed and the reflective conversation that followed was amazingly impactful for my students. Omar is a gifted orator and writer, a servant leader, and an incredible friend. He continues to inspire me to provide high impact experiences to create a bridge of equity and connection for our youth.”
