My goal has been to encourage jointness, to push people to think of affiliations rather than to operate as solo entrepreneurs.
The encouragement I got from Campbell was a quick check and praise. Once the Space Beagle was launched on its mission, it seemed natural for it to breed additional thoughts.
I grew up in Haifa and enjoyed the wonderful beaches and Mount Carmel that rolls into the Mediterranean Sea. From my early days at home, I remember a strong encouragement to study.
Instead of going out, I'm trying to encourage people to have a memorable experience in their own home. We call it 'Delicioso Night In.' I invite the people I care about the most. Then, when I get a lot of people together, I like to have finger foods.
I'm encouraged because you pick up any food magazine and there's two or three recipes involving Indian spices.
'Halal in the Family' will expose a broad audience to some of the realities of being Muslim in America. By using satire, we will encourage people to reconsider their assumptions about Muslims, while providing a balm to those experiencing anti-Muslim bias.

My kindergarten teacher encouraged me to learn, as did my school headmaster, who gave me a grant to study.
My neighborhood didn't really encourage women, though it didn't prevent women from progressing, either.
