EP.011 – From Child Bride To Changemaker with Zarif Sahin

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of sharing a TEDx stage with today’s guest. When listening to her talk, I was both shocked and inspired. With the launch of The UV Effect Podcast, I knew I had to have her on to share her story.

In this episode, you will be amazed by Real Estate agent and a voice for child brides, Zarif Sahin.

You will hear her story of becoming a child bride at only 14 years old, traveling to a new world and having her first child at 16 years old. You will be inspired by her strength and determination to build a new life for her three daughter and make education a priority in their lives.

Get ready for another uplifting episode of #TheUVEffect with Zarif Sahin.
