About Amiri

I have been blessed beyond measure and try to reciprocate those blessings in the way of services. Right now, I mostly donate my time and energy, so that later I might have knowledge and resources. I am passionate about empathy, and also about clarity, so I’ve chosen a path—through SWAG, Rodent Herbivory Research in the Department of Natural Resources, and my Sun columns—that allows me to become the best at articulating that passion to others.
