Wiser World

This conversation between Shahnila Ahmad and myself talks about the holy month of Ramadan, designed for those who know relatively little about this special time for Muslims around the world. 

My guest, Shahnila Ahmad, is a Muslim American who grew up in Michigan and moved to California where she has lived for the last 20 years. She has an MBA in Healthcare management as was a Sr. Consultant for the largest HMO in the country.  She quit corporate America to focus on family and kids. She is now a homeschool mom of four children, and a Parent Mentor.  She has over 15 years of experience with youth. Shahnila is the founder of Brave Muslim Parents where she equips and empowers today’s Muslim parents to raise resilient kids. On her IG page (@bravemuslimparents) she talks about everyday parenting challenges to taboo topics and how to tackle that with a faith mindset. She is a devout American Muslim. Feel free to connect with her on IG @bravemuslimparents.
