    As an immigrant over and over again across three continents Shireen Quidosi has lived the themes coloring our cultural and policy landscape today — migration, radicalization, and adaptation across seismic cultural shifts. In 2019, Shireen grew deeply concerned about the new eruptions of extremism and identity politics (a ‘gateway drug’ to radicalization). The following year, alarmed by the normalization and acceleration of radicalization, she shed the skin of her own identity markers by choosing to no longer self-identify based on race, ethnicity, faith, or political ideologies. Shireen chooses beyond polarity and offers her experience and expertise through a new model of conscious leadership rooted in the feminine. She is currently writing a book, "The Song of the Human Heart" and forming an accompanying 501c3, The Foundation for Human Belonging.
