Chelby Marie Daigle is Muslim Link’s Editor in Chief and Coordinator. Under her direction, Muslim Link adopted its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy so that the website strives to reflect the complexity of Muslim communities in Canada. She knows that she fails to do justice to this complexity every day but she will continue to try to improve as she recognizes the frustration of being both marginalized in the mainstream and also marginalized in Muslim communities. As Coordinator, she works to build relationships with Muslim and mainstream organizations and manages the website's social media, event listings, and directories. She organizes regular Muslim Link gatherings. She also works closely with the Publisher to find ways to keep Muslim Link sustainable. Find her on Twitter @ChelbyDaigle
After moving from Gatineau, Quebec to Calgary, Alberta, Aicha Lasfar had an opportunity to explore the wonders of the Albertan Wilderness. This inspired her to explore an art form she was previously unfamiliar with, pyrography, the free-hand art of decorating wood through burning.
Starting in 2019, Ottawa's annual Muslim Family Conference, the I.LEAD Conference, launched iLEADx, a speech and talent competition for local Muslim youth by local Muslim youth, organized in a style similar to TEDx Talks.
