Hi there…I am Ashley Divine’s mom and I loved that she was able to be on your show and try to bring more awareness to Islam and Muslims. I am very proud of the woman she has become. Thank you for having this outlet…
As well you should be, Mrs. Divine. It is my great honor to know Ashley and to have had her on the program.
