“We as human beings almost always have an initial impression and judgment of people based on their appearances. This program taught me to open my heart to everyone and I am so thankful it taught and showed me a different side of love and connection. My favorite lecture had to be ‘Dreams and Visions in Islamic Tradition’ by Prof. Ozgen Felek; I loved the way it combined reality and dreams and the messages that those dreams retained.”
My art business started off as a personal project; I decided to paint the back of my denim jacket. My family and friends were very encouraging, and they all suggested that I start my own account. I went ahead and grasped the opportunity. I am planning on doing a few collaborations with local artists and local donation clubs to serve the community in the near future. I figured out that I need to give to the community, just as much as I take from it. My business is new;,however, I see potential in spreading the word and making it successful.
