In the first ever session of Seats At The Table, Christina talks to her good friend, Zareen, about reflecting on direct action, being a Muslim American at the Women’s March, and smiling for photos.

Get to know the guest:
Smart, kind, passionate, Zareen Rahman is just starting to scratch the surface of her potential. Born and raised in the golden state (named for her relentlessly sunny personality of course), she studied Business Economics at the University of California, Irvine. In her final year, she became the Runway Director for Fashion Fighting Famine, a non-profit organization that blends charity and fashion through an annual runway show and bazaar extravaganza. Voila! Zareen’s love for doing meaningful work while having free license to boss people around was born. After graduating, she tried doing the whole corporate Accountant/Finance thing but she eventually found her dream job as a Finance and Operations Manager at a national non-profit. She’s very passionate about social justice and is dedicated to creating change and equal chances for all. In her spare time, she is studying for her GMATs and plans to start a blog combining her love for fashion, fabulous women of colour, and intersectional feminism.
