My name is Shari and I’m a revert to Islam. I am a New Hampshire native but have been calling Florida home for 18 years. I graduated from USF with a degree in History and a minor in Religious Studies.

My journey towards CAIR-FL began after the election of 2016 when I started dedicating my time to community activism and engagement. Landing at CAIR-FL was a natural fit for me because I believe I’m living my faith when my time is spent in the service of others.

I became acquainted with CAIR-FL many years ago when I was a victim of a hate crime, and then of discrimination. Just the existence of CAIR made me feel that I had recourse and someone on my side. I believe wholeheartedly in CAIR-FL’s mission and am honored to be a small part of something much bigger.
