Meet this week's Friend Feature Friday Somayyah from Virginia!
I am thrilled to introduce my wonderful friend Somayyah on the blog today! Through six degrees (or less) of separation explains how we became friends and how she is connected to the blog. Somayyeh is Iman's cousin and was on the planning committee with Farrah for Fashion With Compassion and her cousin is married to my good friend! Make sense???
After the first time meeting Somayyah I instantly loved her - I may have also mentally said "Please be my friend you are so cool!" Somayyah is beautiful inside and out and always manages to have a smile on her face. She has a big heart which shines through her work in the nonprofit sector and the amazing charity event her and her fellow committee members planned. I was in awe of the FWC event and was honored to be apart of such a special and spectacular event. Somayyah is a kind, caring, and compassionate young lady and I'm super blessed and lucky to have her as a friend.
