Collected in partnership with Perth Festival and The Empathy Museum, A Mile in My Shoes is an extraordinary collection of stories that give us a glimpse into the lives of Western Australians from all walks of life.

At the age of eleven, Aisha was already challenging the meaning of religion and eventually found her own truth as a Muslim woman. Although she is proud of her faith, after verbal abuse from strangers following the events of 9/11, she made the difficult choice to remove her face veil.
