Razia honored with Speak for Thyself Award

Speak for Thyself AwardOn Friday, Razia accepted a Speak for Thyself Award via Skype (local time in Afghanistan: 4:30 am)!

The “Speak for Thyself Award” honors exceptional women, women who, in the spirit of Priscilla Mullins, make their own choices. The award recognizes the role of women in America as pilgrims, pioneers, advocates, community organizers, politicians and business leaders, as well as mothers, sisters, wives and friends, women whose daily lives are a reflection of America. The “Speak for Thyself Award” puts a face on these women while maintaining a presence in the 21st century for a family and a homestead of the 17th century.
