A haircut, and so much more

Ibraihim Musa, founder of Cuts for Kids.

One of the things I love best about freelance writing in Ottawa is the opportunity it brings to meet interesting, passionate people – those individuals who are working hard to make a difference, right here in my own community.

Ibrahim Musa is definitely a difference maker. This University of Ottawa political science student – who is only 18 years old – recently launched an organization called Cuts for Kids, which gives underprivileged kids a free haircut, and helps them feel better about themselves.

It was inspiring to talk to Musa about his motivation to give back and his desire to help new immigrants to Canada. This thoughtful teen is definitely going places in his academic and professional life – but he’s taking time to help those less fortunate along the way, which is something we can all learn from.

Read more about Musa and his work in Ottawa’s underprivileged communities in my recent article, “A haircut, and so much more” published in the latest issue of Parenting Times Magazine.

    What a great idea! I love hearing about stories like this one – people who just want to help figuring out practical ways to do so! I also saw your article today while my kids were at dance – very good!
