Being open to life-changing influences as an immigrant in a new country is important, Kassam said, but so is not forgetting your roots."I felt that I had to be rooted in my own identity to have confidence navigating in a life [here]," she said.
Kassam and fellow contributor to the book Meharoona Ghani will be participating in a reading and signing of The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth as part of the Word Vancouver festival on Thursday, Sept.
The new book The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth is an attempt to change that by telling the stories and experiences of 21 women.
Vancouver's Azmina Kassam is one of those "Muslimah" contributors — which is the feminine word for Muslim — and she said that writing down her story was as much a chance to share her experiences as it was to explore her own identity."When I was approached, I thought 'What a wonderful opportunity to share with other women my story,'" Kassam told CBC's host of North By Northwest Sheryl Mac Kay.
