“When Samina and I first got acquainted, there was something immediately different about her. I was amazed at the compassion Samina had for others. I could not quite wrap my head around it; here is someone who shows genuine concern for everyone else. She has a caring, nurturing personality that differentiated her from all the other college kids.
Samina’s story starts the same as many others. She was born in Upstate New York, followed seven years later by her younger sister, and raised by their loving parents. Samina exceled in her studies while still maintaining a vibrant social life. She was involved with activities both in and outside of school — from the science clubs and marching band to choir and theater. This continued through college, where we got together. She was always able to spend time with me and our friends while still doing well in her classes.
Somewhere along the way, her experiences helped craft a unique, capable, and caring individual. While her parents worked three jobs, Samina learned how to nurture others very early on by helping to raise her younger sister. When her grandparents came to live with them, Samina helped take care of her grandfather who was ill, helping spark her love for patient care. Throughout our relationship Samina has time and again put aside her own issues to take care of others. When anyone she cares for has an issue, everything in her world stops and she goes above and beyond to help.
After graduating medical school, Samina and I were married and moved in together here in Brooklyn, NY where we live to this day. Forever interested in arts and crafts, Samina has always prided herself on her ability to make things from scratch. She loves cooking and baking, as well as sewing quilts, crocheting, cross stitching and as of late sewing non-surgical face masks, many of which have been donated to people in our community. She is a fun, grounded, and stable person with a desire to help others in any way she can. Knowing her, as I do, I know she would make a wonderful mother.”
