Welcome to Episode No. 8. We have our first guest on the podcast!

Shireen Qudosi is a Muslim American writer on faith, identity, and belonging. She comes from a family of refugees and has hopscotched across the world from Pakistan to Iran, Germany, and finally the United States. 

She's now known as a top 10 Muslim Reformer, a role in which she advocates for radically honest conversations. 

In this 15-minute episode we talk about what it's like growing up at a muslim girl in America and the challenges she and her family faced.
