In Service of Troy

During the past several years, Amin has had the pleasure of serving the people of Troy in various capacities. After moving to Troy, Amin immediately joined a newly formed Ethnic Issues Advisory Board where he helped to establish the vision, mission, and the goals of the board. During his time, the board expanded its function to reach out to the diverse residents of Troy by organizing and showcasing events highlighting the sights and sounds of various ethnic festivals such as German, Greek, Polish, Chinese, Indian, Pakistani, Philipine and Middle-Eastern.

During his term as a board member, various community services were proposed including Resource Guides for new residents. He participated in the Troy Daze Festival and Kaleidoscope event to promote the board’s activities.

Amin, a resident concerned about Troy’s future, actively participated in TROY 2020 Vision program. In this project, he took regionalism as a faculty to elaborate Troy’s future and enhance its function with the assistance of neighboring cities.

Believing that charity begins at home, Amin participates regularly in the National Day of Service in which he joins hands with hundreds of area youth to brighten the lives of those in need in remembrance of 9/11 victims.

Amin is a core member of Troy Interfaith Group which invites all faith communities to gather, grow and give for promoting the common values of love, peace and justice. This group provides breakfast to the Habitat for Humanity volunteers. The group celebrates National Day of Prayer, International Day of Peace, and Thanksgiving in order to bridge communities by breaking barriers.

The City of Troy, for the last one year, has been embroiled in the library issue. Seeing that the image of Troy being tarnished Amin passionately got involved to save the city from further embarrassment. He sincerely campaigned for the survival of the library in order to move the city forward.
