Esra Nur Sula, a Turkish American, has lived in the United States since 2000. She has a Masters in Architecture. When she moved to the US, she had five children and became a stay-at-home mom – a humbling and challenging vocation she continues to take on proudly. Early on in her career as a parent, she noticed the lack of Islamic resources for children in the US. It was with a great deal of diligence and creativity that she brought the pages of Salaam Magazine to life and among readers across the country and around the globe. Reading, hiking, and exploring nature are Esra’s indispensable love.
