I am also actively involved with ACIC's Maktab, having the honour of teaching Quran to students - while being a part of the strong team of volunteers at Maktab - on Saturday's. I was brought up in this community and consider myself extremely blessed to have had a safe environment to not only learn about my faith, learn to speak the Farsi language and recite the holy Quran, but also meet countless influential figures. Who to this day, have positively affected my life, motivated me and instilled the self confidence necessary to pursue such a position.
