Faleeha Hassan

In this month’s podcast we introduce you to Ms. Faleeha Hassan. A portrait of strength in the face of dire circumstances, she invites us to feel the fire of a heart that refuses to accept defeat. Sharing her personal insight of life as a single mother, refugee and educator, she teaches us that although we cannot control the pain and anguish that comes with tragedy, we can determine our response to rise above the challenges. ~ Jane SpokenWord, WordCity’s Contributing Editor of Interviews and Podcasts
