    Thank you so much for listening to Nasma Of NY's Levantine Arabic Podcast! We just want to tell you know that our podcast has ranked in the list of Top 10 Podcasts in countries like Netherlands, Sweden, Lebanon, and Italy! We're in the top ranks among language learning, and so we're competing with other languages like Mandarin and Spanish. I started out this podcast as a small project to help my students with their Levantine Arabic hearing skills and comprehension. Never in my dreams I had imagined this project would land up in one of the top podcasts and compete with different languages. This achievement would not have been possible without my listeners and subscribers. Thank you so much for all the support! Now that season 2 has come to an end, I am already gearing up for season 3. If you have any topics or ideas on what you would like to hear next, feel free to drop an email or DM!

    Episode 43: AUB Cats

    11:46

    Cats have made the AUB campus their home for more than 30 years. As families fled the country during the war, many left their pets behind. AUB became the go-to-dump spot for abandoning cats. Since then, the population has grown and become a day-to-day reality for AUB students. AUB cats are loved and treated with care by everyone on campus. SETA was founded in September 2019, and club president Lynn Wahab my guest today in this episode, is keen to foster partnerships not only to transform the AUB cats' feeding schedule, but to influence every aspect of their wellbeing.  You will find the fill script with translation on our website. https://nasmaofny.com/podcasts/ Social Media Links SETA (student club) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/seta_aub/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AUB.SETA/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/setaaub AUB Cats (volunteers from all the community - including students and staff) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/aubcats/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AUBcats/ Donation Links GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/the-pledge-for-bliss-street-cats For local donations: at AUB Main Gate, donations can be dropped in an envelope labeled ‘SETA’ in the neighborhood initiative box Join our Conversational Classes:  https://nasmaofny.com/adult-group-conversation-class/ Join our Levantine Masterclass: https://nasmaofny.com/online-course-membership/ Get the eBook: https://nasmaofny.com/adult-textbooks/ Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/levantinearabic_bynasmaofny/ Subscribe to our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ3xodgJWwMeRCE59ZNNCTQ?view_as=subscriber
