Raakin Hossain Author

Born and raised in Orange County, Southern California, Raakin Hossain is far from the average teenager. He considers himself an adventurous fellow, but not in the sense that he would bungee jump off the Empire State Building in New York or wrestle Bengal tigers in India. Adventure for Raakin is refraining from chocolate during his short-lived diet goals and resisting from the many temptations of this world. Liberated from the Engineering and Medicine Syndrome (EMS), he is currently majoring in the field of Economics. Only through the Infinite Mercy of Allah, the tireless efforts of his mother, and sacrifices of his father, Raakin completed the memorization of the Qur’an at the age of 15. On his free time, Raakin loves to read, write, and develop websites for his organization, the Jannah Network. Stumbling upon MYM on Facebook, Raakin joined the team in hope to better his skills in communication, professionalism, and writing.
