Salaam alaikum, peace be with you.

My name is Rebecca. I converted to Islam in March of 2008. My journey to Islam took about two years after being introduced to the faith by a coworker turned friend while I attended the University of Connecticut. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Masters in Education. I love teaching. I love children. I love Islam.

Alhamdulillah, All Praise is for Allah. I have a wonderful, beautiful and accepting family and am surrounded by many, many wonderful friends who love and motivate me to make the most of what Allah has given me.
