Presentation Testimonials

"This was the most rewarding educational interaction I've had with a group of students, EVER! Honestly, very eyeopening for them, as NONE of them have ever been outside the U.S. You have inspired them to think bigger and past the limits of American mainstream culture. What a perfect way to promote a country and learn firsthand about the complex fabric that intertwines culture and religion. Thank you."


Brenda Butterfield, MSW, instructor

Marriages & Families Worldwide

University of Minnesota-Duluth


"You clearly helped to promote a greater understanding of these two cultures through your well-illustrated and clearly presented PowerPoint program. We at the Alworth Institute appreciate the work that you are doing to enhance both Arab and American understanding of the other. This is so important at a time when simple ignorance can exacerbate political tensions."

"To have you and Ms. al Sheroogi both on campus to discuss both Ms. Coons' excellent book and the larger issues of truth and perception between our communities was a powerful experience for all who attended. As you said, the future of relations between all sorts of groups and individuals depends on their ability to see each other without preconceived ideas and assmptions. The truth, in many ways, shall set us free."


Marcellus Davis, Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

"I enjoyed the human application of what education can do to bring people together. I think it's so important to have these presentations for people with inaccurate assumptions of the Arab culture and Muslim religion."

"I would definitely recommend the speaker. Although Indoc gives us information about the Arab culture, the speaker had more overall information with more cultural information. Indoc needs to include her to help prepare Americans coming to the Middle East to know more about the culture here."

"Schools should be busting down doors to have her speak. Cultural awareness should be part of every school's curriculum through all grades!"

"This lecture was one of the most interesting lectures I have ever attended. It made more sense when Mary told us that Arab was a culture and Islam was a religion, and that culture could rank higher in some cases over the religion."
