How would you describe your family?

Our family is a multi-cultural blend of African and Latin American roots.We laugh, joke,eat, dance,play and pray together. Our son is the embodiment of our marriage loving, funny & inquisitive. We live life each day by trying to celebrate one another through love and respect.

What role does faith play in your family?

Islam plays a huge role in maintaining balance and harmony within the household. We pray together daily and our son often participates with us. Our faith was the main reason we got married over 10 years ago because we wanted our relationship to be pleasing to GOD.

What is your family's biggest challenge right now?

 Our biggest challenge is to maintain balance in the household. Between our nonprofit work as youth advocates, our personal life and parenting, balance can be a daunting juggling act.

What is your family's greatest joy/accomplishment right now?

Our family greatest accomplishment thus far has been our family vacation to London and Paris last year. To be with friends and family visiting these beautiful cities with so much history and architecture, it was an amazing experience for our family to enjoy together.
