Nashville elected its first Muslim ever to the City Council Last Night....and Friday Zulfat Suara couldn't stop smiling.
She thinks the win says more about Nashville than it does her.
The first decision Suara had to make was what ice cream flavor to get at the Farmers' Market and congratulations followed her as she walked throughout the market.
Suara was born and raised in Nigeria until she was 20. She never dreamed of living in Nashville and serving on its Metro Council.
Although she grew up far away from Nashville over in West Africa, she knew the music that came from Music City. Country singer Don Williams is her favorite.
She claims Nashville voters are some of her best friends; she says they looked beyond her religion.
