Muslim Female Skate Crew

A global community of Muslim female leaders across the board.

ABOUT US

Skater Uktis is a global community, a movement, here not only to create and connect Muslim female skaters but to develop and empower the next generation of Muslim females to grow spiritually and become ethical leaders across the board; activists, politicians, community organisers, and much more.

We are here to help bring out the unknown talents within one another and channel them to showcase the true message of Islam, at a time when the media portrays Muslims in a negative light.

We will work together to bring positive social change in society through personal and spiritual development. We hope to encourage our members globally to serve those around them- to serve their communities, by getting involved in volunteering within local community projects and helping the vulnerable e.g. charity work, soup kitchens, and holding cultural events such as Islamic poetry & art nights and much more. All while learning to skateboard together.
