“I saw Nazima’s presentation at the conference and was very impressed. The way she told the story of a woman from her research, tying it to so many “big” issues, blew me away. It was not only very well written and narrated, but also incredibly substantial. Congratulations! I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed her presentation.”
