About Me: 

Salam! Welcome everyone, I'm Ashley. I'm a freshmen in High School. I'm mature for my age. I have faced many problems growing up. My mother left my family when I was just a baby, and my father was on drugs for the first ten years of my life. Although my dad is off drugs now, I've never had that father-daughter relationship with him that I always dreamed of. But I'm not letting that hold me back. I'm looking on the bright side; I've learned to be an independant young lady and I know how to make my own decisions. And if it wasn't for the depression that put me through, I may not have found what I had needed all my life. What I found was: A relationship with God. I've been a Muslim since April 2012. In the process of becoming Muslim, I lost many friends. I'm not accepted like I used to be. But it's all worth it! I love my religion and I wouldn't change that for anybody. I thank God for guiding me to Islam! I'm here to share my story, and hear other stories also.

ALWAYS stay strong, and have faith in God! 2:286 "God does not burden any soul with more than it can bear.."

My Passions: 
Reading, Writing, Learning!
My Challenges: 
Being the only Muslim (Revert) in a small town in the Southern USA!
My Vision for the Future:
