She lives her Muslim faith, in public, for the sake of a better Tulsa, a better Oklahoma, a better nation, and a better world. In this interview with Gary Peluso-Verdend, Aliye tells of the difficult national and personal events that propelled her into public life. Listen as she constantly takes a negative experience and uses it to fuel positive change.
