Daughter of a military officer shares her story of converting to Islam

This is the story of Umm Uthman, a Latina convert and daughter of a US military officer, who had the chance of traveling all over the US. Her interest in Islam began after she read about the life of civil rights leader Malcolm X, and she eventually embraced Islam in the year 2000 after meeting a Muslim family. She is now involved in helping other Spanish-speakers learn about the beauty of Islam through her education-based organization Hablamos Islam (We Speak Islam) and its project Hablamos Islam Niños (We Speak Islam, Kids). She has written and published several bilingual children’s books about various Islamic topics, which have been distributed in countries all over Latin America, Spain and the US.
