My name is Safina Asif and I have volunteered on the project and participated in various focus group meetings to discuss the promotional material for the project including the leaflets and the storybook. I have never volunteered before and so this was my first volunteering experience. I volunteered to take part in this project because I found the topic very interesting and wanted to learn more about different cultures. What interested me about the project was the way in which different Muslims give gifts over generations that may have passed down. From this volunteering experience I have learnt about different people’s stories on how they have evolved in the gift giving process and stories of what gifts they have bought and why when transcribing audio interviews. This experience has taught me about different people’s heritage and how their way of life is. I will want to volunteer again from my experiences on the project.
