(December 11, 2005, Orange, NJ) On May 4, 2005, Yasmeen celebrated her 39th birthday! She's now ready to share her challenges surrounding her childhood, adulthood, the aftermath of 9/11 as a Muslim woman, and passion to run a business, and relationships maintained throughout her life. This process for Yasmeen began as she embarks on composing her thoughts on raising her son alone after an eight-year marriage and the divorce. A bit of what you'll read about from her memoirs is how an African-American, little girl, born and raised in Newark, New Jersey in 1966 made it while later ending up in Cary, North Carolina in 2001 to raise her now 16-year old son as a single parent. In addition to running and operating a home-based business, Yasmeen graduated from high school in 1984 and business school in 1985. She has plans to further her education towards a degree in psychology. She is a member of Coachville.com and International Coaching Federation (ICF). Yasmeen will embark on this journey with her family and friends. Yasmeen's personal journals and friends will play a pivotal role in rekindling her memories of past and present events. Yasmeen's goal is to have her manuscript typed, edited and ready for print by the end of 2006. After this huge task is completed, she plans to venture out to writing books geared towards women in entrepreneurship and other self-help books.
