 Diversity Convocation 2017

Rais Bhuiyan


Rais Bhuiyan, an American Muslim from Bangladesh, is an
extraordinary individual with a powerful story. After serving as an air force
pilot in Bangladesh, Rais moved to the United States in 1999 to study computer
technology. Ten days after 9/11, Rais was the victim of a horrific hate crime.
Shot in the face at point blank range by white supremacist, Mark Stroman,
self-described “the Arab slayer,” Rais barely survived. Sadly, two other victims
were killed. Stroman was sentenced to death; ten years later, Rais led an
international campaign, fighting to save Stroman’s life.
