During the early stages of my career I had the opportunity to work in several schools, some of which were in the Muslim Community. Working closely with students I not only honed my skills, but also discovered my passion: using my mentorship skills while providing a safe environment for others.

In todays’ world, we are all faced with uncomfortable situations that our former generations are unable to understand. The fast paced innovations in technology have placed a significant effect on the growth and livelihood of the younger generation. Todays’ youth are constantly being bombarded with information, both positive and negative, but are not given the tools or platform to successfully work through the information. Yes, we have parents who are constantly teaching and guiding us along the straight path but it really does take village to raise a child. I am a part of that village.

I have set up workshops catering to the Female Muslim Youth on topics that are very real and very important to cover – Self Esteem, Social Media, and Bullying. The goal is for anyone in attendance to walk away with awareness, knowledge, tools, and a connection with an individual who has walked in their shoes – me.
