Last night MCPS Student Member Of The Board candidate, Nimah Nayel, shared a few messages she recently received that were extremely hateful in nature.
Nimah tweeted, “While running for SMOB, I had a wonderful, enriching, and positive experience. I’m speaking out, however, because I recently received vile, disgusting, and hateful messages- attached below. I was disappointed and upset by the messages, but heartened and empowered by the support.”
In a display of support, Richard Montgomery High School principal, Damon Monteleone, tweeted this following response:
We have decided not to share the content of the hateful messages, but they are available on Nimah’s public account for anyone that may want to see them.
“I will never let cowards shake me, and I will never let hate change me” said Nimah in a later tweet.
Nimah, we commend you for your graceful approach to the hateful comments.
