A recent initiative that I have taken on is leading the Women’s Tea Virtual Event here at AMCC. This was created to address the needs of women in our community. This is a time for understanding and support as we join together in sisterhood.

My current responsibilities on the Board of Directors include leading the Building Maintenance/Security committee, and Food pantry/outreach committee.

We have often done an on-site drop off but sometimes we will do a drive thru pick-up at AMCC.
It is an absolute privilege and joy to be able to serve under the umbrella of Islam. If you are interested in joining a fun and motivated group of individuals, feel free to contact me.
