The Global Conversation is an online media platform for Brown University students, faculty, and alums to share their international ideas and initiatives.
I have been the Associate University Chaplain for the Muslim Community at Brown University since July 2009. I graduated from Brown in 2001, and from graduate school at Princeton in 2008. I converted to Islam when I was a sophomore at Brown in the fall of 1998, and most of my work and studies has been focused on discerning the "proper" interpretation of Islam in the contemporary world. Needless to say, Usama bin Ladin and I do not agree on much, just in case you were wondering.
