I love being a part of Alcorn Immigration Law. The team is making a difference in the immigration journeys of so many people.
My immigration journey to the United States was only supposed to last for about a year when I first arrived in late November 2018 to begin an Atlas Corps Fellowship. But that changed within days of my arrival when protests began in my homeland of Sudan. Even though I was here in the U.S., I lent my voice to the growing revolutionary movement. But soon afterward, I began receiving death threats aimed at myself and my family. With the help of an immigration lawyer, I was eventually granted asylum in the U.S.
I am a social entrepreneur with a passion for using technology innovations to solve chronic social problems and I had that passion since college. I earned my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science from the University of Khartoum, and since then, I have been a serial entrepreneur. In 2016, I founded two ventures: Zonilus Digital Marketing Agency and My Academic Platform (MAP). MAP is a social enterprise based in my hometown of Khartoum that provides access to quality education, workshops, and mentorship for young professionals in Africa through an online platform.
In 2017, I co-founded the Kush Sudan initiative, an English-language website that provides accurate information about the incredible hospitality, hidden treasures, and cultural diversity of Sudan, the country I love so much and hope to return to one day.
I recently registered my startup Zonilus Digital Marketing Agency here in the US and started my journey as a US immigrant entrepreneur.

When I’m not working, I love to swim. It’s such a great source of relaxation for me. I also love playing with my nieces and nephew, who are a big source of joy. I enjoy reading novels, although I recently started delving more into books about startups, business, and marketing.
