Makki said her family escaped an oppressive religious regime that persecuted non-Muslims. Growing up in the United States, Makki witnessed her parents overcome poverty as her mother worked as a childcare provider and delivered phone books to make ends meet while her father studied to become a surgeon. That inspired Makki to develop a strong work ethic.
“I’m running because the people of the 13th District deserve a public servant who will fight for a strong economy, lower health care costs, good paying Tampa Bay area jobs, and less government regulations on small businesses,” Makki said.
“I value all that America has done for me and my family. America is the last beacon of hope for freedom and opportunity. If we concede to those looking to make this a socialist country, we risk losing the only nation where you can still succeed regardless of your background or upbringing.” - Florida Politics
