Echoes hosts a monthly gathering in which we invite a member(s) from the larger Bellingham community to share about their life - why are they here? what are they doing to make life better here in the ‘ham? how can we learn from them?
The goal is to create better networks here in Bellingham. We’ll be recording these sessions in hopes of launching a podcast that seeks to give voice to even more Bellinghamsters, developing a broader web of neighbors who know each other. We live in an amazing place with amazing people - it’s worthwhile to get to know others!
Our dialogue partners this month will be panel of Muslim women. We’ll learn a few things: what is it like to be a Muslim woman living in Bellingham, and how do they keep their faith active in today’s culture?
Iman: mom, practicing Nutrition Consultant, Holistic Health Coach as well as a certified Personal Trainer.
Erum: mom, recent resident of Bellingham, previously a Principal of an Islamic grade school.
Aneesa: mom, US veteran, convert to Islam.
Snacks: feel free to bring some. Abundant snacks for all!
