‘It was really engaging sincerely and I loved the acceptance, even when I was to shy to speak and you guys said it’s fine. Despite that I was able to engage in all the creative sessions through the chat box and it was an interesting experience. Just within a short time the sisters had a beautiful bond. ‘

Hajar

‘These sessions were a mirror into myself; it felt mesmerizingly beautiful being around sisters with whom I could connect on a whole different level. Gems were shared and lifelong memories were made. Alhamdulillah for The Woke Write Masterclass; alhamdulillah for, and jazakallahu khairan to sisters Aishah and Kashmir for initiating this exceptional course for Muslimah writers.’

‘Kashmir is a very empathetic, understanding and helpful coach who understands my concerns, views and goals. Kashmir has helped me find ways in which to rediscover myself spiritually, career-wise and also personality-wise. I highly recommend Kashmir as a coach because she will diligently work with you one-on-one, patiently, and in a structured way, to accomplish your goals. Kashmir will help you rediscover yourself, your strengths and aptitudes in order for you to achieve your life goals. Many of the strengths that lay dormant within us sometimes require the right person to come along and unlock it so that our talents and abilities can be used to their full potential- I believe Kashmir helped me discover this. Thank you Kashmir, keep up the good work!’
