Bangles to Mom: Letters From Pakistan
Hi, I'm Marsha.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was raised in the beautiful sunshine of Phoenix, Arizona, but, at 25, I found myself trapped in a difficult and abusive marriage. Out of desperation, I went against court orders and threw myself into a 22-year-long self-exile in a small farming village in Asia.
During that time, I learned to cook authentic Pakistani cuisine on an open flame, began teaching English in schools and universities, as well as, dedicated myself to various community service works.
Eventually, I returned to my homeland, and am now sharing my incredible experiences and supporting domestic violence awareness campaigns. And of course, still teaching, but now teaching online to students from around the world.
So, who is Marsha Marie? Well, I’m a mom, seeker, teacher, trainer, public speaker and now---an author and poet; hoping to share with others---the world thru my eyes.
Thank you for visiting.
