Name: Olivia Smith-Elnaggar
“I am a sophomore at George Washington University where I study English, with aspirations of writing and editing novels after attending graduate school. I am a black, Muslim woman starting to find my voice and stand on issues like racism and fear of the unknown. The National Museum of Natural History is my favorite of the Smithsonian Institutionâ€™s Museums, and I think that it is ideal as a venue for such a controversial and universally perplexing topic as "Race." I hope to be a positive influence in the discussion and to challenge some persisting misconceptions in visitors.”
