What a crazy ride the last few weeks have been. As you may know, I will publish my first book "women of Kuwait" and I decided to try Kickstarter to fund the book’s birth.

It worked, it did not seem like it was going to work but, it worked!!!

So first of all, this newsletter is to thank all those who graciously supported me. I received a great deal of encouragement and goodwill from a number of people who left inspiring messages that really help boost my spirit and make the campaign a success. Or who personally offered assistance, ideas, and encouragement.

You people ROCK!

Panel discussion at the Permanent Mission of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations

I had a great panel discussion with Narjos Hilale yesterday. The panel was organized by  The Islamic Heritage Society, Inc. at the Permanent Mission of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations, Manhattan, USA.

 

Along with the panel, I had a solo show of my work " Women of Kuwait" at Permanent Mission of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations, Manhattan, USA.
