TAKREEM AMERICA celebrates Arab Diaspora at its annual weekend in Los Angeles

04 Mar 2023
‘Takreem America, the USA offshoot of the Middle East and North Africa region-based Takreem Foundation, concluded in a ceremony held in Los Angeles last night its second Annual Weekend to celebrate success and foster connection in the Arab community.The event comprises Takreem’s annual Awards Night and Takminds seminar series, both of which recognize the contributions of the Arab world and distinguished Arab diaspora voices in the fields of science, social activism, the arts and more. The associate professor of nanoengineering at the University of California, San Diego continued: “They believe in science, engineering and technology and the value it brings to human civilization.” It “is super important that the ‘Mo’ series on Netflix has been honored,” said series director and Special Distinction Laureate Solvan “Slick” Naim. “It is recognized for what Palestinian refugees are going through…and this is just one story, Mo Amer’s story of how he had to assimilate in Houston, Texas.” While Takreem America aims to create year-round connections, the Annual Weekend is intended to be a gathering place for those interactions, with the Takminds seminars fostering important dialogues to improve the community and broader world.’
