#MuslimahMonday: Highlighting Jill Nouser
Today’s #MuslimahMonday is featuring our Chief Financial Officer, Jill Nouser! Read her full interview below:
Pick up to 3 muslim women who inspire you
I automatically thought of 2 Muslim women that truly inspire me. First my former mother-in-law who was my role model for becoming a Muslim almost 25 years ago. The second is undoubtedly my daughter. Her deep commitment to her faith, her pure heart make me so proud to be her mother.
What personality trait has gotten you in the most trouble?
The personality trait that has caused trouble...being a very empathetic person. Feeling things so deeply has been a burden and a blessing. I’ve been hurt deeply by people but Allah has shown me who are “true people” and deserving of my caring about them.
If you could time travel, where would you go and why?
If I could travel back in time I would like to experience the life/time of our beloved Prophet Mohamed (pbuh). I’ve always loved and have been very interested in history. When I read Quran and books about the Prophet I visualize the world at that time. It fascinates me.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best piece of advice I’ve received was from my beloved parents, God bless their souls. They told me (and demonstrated) to work hard, be honest and always be willing to help someone.
