Young Colombian who found happiness in Islam
Sometimes is hard to accept other people’s decisions, but we have to respect it. Last night I went to celebrate a special date for Muslim people. As always it was a beautiful day and one more day I had to be grateful with the sisterhood that I’ve found here in Irvine. I did a speech about why I reverted to Islam. At the beginning, I didn’t know what to say. I said to myself, “What can I say? I’m shy. I don’t speak english well!” But I decided to say what my heart wanted to say, and after that I feel that my words couldn’t stop there. So, that’s why I am writing this. First, it’s hard for me to say in public why I chose to revert, because my friends and family don’t support my decision. But I am going to do this.
My name is Maria Clara Castellar. I live in Cartagena, Colombia. I am 21-years-old, and this is my story.
