and much more for this year's IamY Convention.
Through annual conventions, IamY (Inspiring American Muslim Youth) hopes to raise awareness about the unique struggles faced by American Muslim youth. By educating the youth themselves and enlightening their families about youth issues, we hope to give the Muslim community the tools and knowledge needed to overcome these challenges and become active, responsible citizens of their world.

It is said that our future can only be determined if we first realize who we are. As American Muslim youth, we are bearers of complex and rich histories. And yet judging by the numerous identity crises plaguing many Muslim youth today, it seems as if we have forgotten ourselves. Our hope at IamY is to inspire American Muslim youth to reawaken and appreciate the complexities that make us who we are. Through education and empowerment, we hope to promote a better understanding of ourselves, our world, and our Lord.
Ultimately, we dream of a brighter, more defined future. Do you?
?Who are We?
As Muslim youth ourselves, we are passionate about youth issues. Hailing from the awesome state of NJ, we know the TriState area. Conventions, conferences, and all sorts of events come and go in this Muslim hot spot. But what makes IamY unique is our intense focus on youth issues. We recognize that the youth are a crucial part of the Muslim community, and their problems are interconnected to the problems of the community.
The IamY 2013 convention explores the dual identities many Muslims, young and old, are negotiating in their day to day lives. Are we American? Are we Muslim? Or Are we both? American Muslim: a new identity worth laying the foundations for the generations to come. We will explore what might be the formation of an American Muslim culture which includes the history of Muslims coming to America, the present life and struggles American Muslims undergo, and the future that we want to build as American Muslims.
IamYs first convention took place on March 17th and 18th, 2012.
