Message to Supporters: My name is Nicole Fauster, and I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I studied International Relations, Arabic, and Sociology. I always had a passion for human rights law, and I had been working and focusing on international law throughout my college career until the Chapel Hill Shooting. The hate crime, which took place my senior year, rocked our community and shook me to the core. I realized the problems of Islamophobia, racism, discrimination, and bigotry were not only in my own country, but in my backyard. I realized I have a serious responsibility to make the country I call home more equitable for those who have marginalized identities. With that goal in mind, I have decided to attend Georgetown Law to focus on public interest law as it pertains to marginalized religious identities. I appreciate the financial support you have provided for me, it will seriously help off set the cost of attendance. I pray that Allah blesses you and your family. I also pray that you will also get rewarded for every good action I do with this degree. This has surely lifted a burden, and for that I am immensely grateful.
Bio: Nicole Fauster is thriving as a Georgetown Law student and burgeoning leader on campus. She will serve as co-president of the Muslim Law Students Association for the 2018-2019 school year. Her passion for justice only grows and she will continue pursuing it through civil rights litigation work at the American Civil Liberties Union in Baltimore, Maryland in the summer of 2018.
