Day 9 - Feruze Faison: “The Sweetest Sip of Water”
Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 3:24]
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
Feruze Faison, our ninth voice in this special series, grew up in Istanbul and now lives and teaches elementary school in New York. After an early marriage in the U.S., she met her current partner, a woman with whom she’s raising three children. Her relationship is a source of estrangement between her and other family members. The Sufism of her native Turkey influences her personal faith and her memories of Ramadan.
