Day 13 - Nadia Sheikh Bandukda: “Breaking Fast in the Garment District”
Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 2:31]
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
Our 13th voice is Nadia Sheikh Bandukda. She is a self-described “by-choice conservative Muslim female born in America, who studied in Saudi Arabia and Teaneck, New Jersey.” She recently graduated from college with a degree in political science and now works at a non-profit focused on immigration issues, and is at work on her first novel. Her Ramadan memory is set in New York’s garment district, in a furniture store owned by her father.
