Rakiya Mohamed joins Ashley and Liz on Party's Over Podcast to share her experience growing up in Maine. Rakiya and her family moved to Maine from Ethiopia when she was a young child. Rakiya grew up in a big loving family in Lewiston, Maine. After high school, she attended Bates College where she graduated with a minor in African American Studies and a major in Biological Chemistry.
On this episode Rakiya shares with us what it was like to move to Maine from Ethiopia, balancing a large family, and opens up about her experience post-grad. Rakiya practices the Islamic religion and is kind enough to help educate us and share a bit with us about what it means to be Muslim.
This episode was such a beautiful reminder that community is such an important part of life and that having a strong, loving community to lean on is critical.
