You’ve probably received a lot more attention after being appointed this position. How do you feel about it?
I have most definitely received more attention after being appointed. I’m excited yet nervous!
But at the same time, I believe that it is critical that the Muslim community recognize the role that women in the community are doing to combat injustice and I am hopeful that my leadership will help in getting the community to recognize as much.
I’m also ecstatic about serving in this capacity as it will help me bridge my academic, personal and professional experience, which I can uniquely leverage to hopefully get the NCPCF more traction for all of our work.
