(Namira Islam’s MuslimARC) presentation just provided a catalyst for something that seriously needed to be brought out into the open. I knew (she) had gotten through to people when they started sharing their personal experiences, and experiences of people they know. And the activities forced us all to interact one on one, and really hear one another’s stories and perspectives. I learned SO much, and empathized with many on a whole new level. And that connection opens the door for a deeper bond amongst your fellow Muslims.
