International Muslim author, speaker and life coach Zohra Sarwari, will discuss with students at Penn State Brandywine what it means to be a Muslim on Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 11:30 a.m. in the Commons/Athletic Center, room 203. She was invited by a group of students who were moved by a talk she gave at the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities Northeast Conference in Hershey last March.

Sarwari has authored 10 books and has appeared on ABC News, Fox News and countless radio shows. Her programs, which include “I Am Not a Terrorist,” “Are Muslim Women Oppressed?” and “Become the Change that You Envision in the World,” inspire students across the globe and aim to peacefully bridge the cultural gap.

According to her website, http://www.zohrasarwari.com, Sarwari moved from Afghanistan to the United States as a refugee at the age of six. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California Davis, an M.B.A. from American Intercontinental University and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Islamic studies. Her first published book is titled “9 Steps to Achieve Your Destiny.” Sarwari, a mother of three with one on the way who is also raising her nephew, started her own business “to share the benefits of her inspirational knowledge and heart-felt experiences with people all around the world,” according to the site.

For more information on the program, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 610-892-1270.
