Foreign House

About Siham

What is your business/idea?

Foreign House is a social media platform.

What inspired you to start a business?

I founded Foreign House because I wanted to create a platform that was diverse and inclusive and is here to make a change by changing the narrative and creating a pathway for others.

How did you get to the point you are today with this business/idea?

It wasn’t an easy road. Sometimes I felt like giving up on the idea and sometimes I questioned if anyone even cares, but I kept going because I believed in myself. I believed in what i was building and I believed that what I was building was going to make a difference in people’s lives.

What is your vision for the future of your business?

I have so many plans for Foreign House, but for now I am just taking things one day at a time.

What goals do you hope the One and All program will help you achieve?

Besides funding, I really want to be able to network, expand on my ideas, and work with like minded people to bring new opportunities to the community of Lansing.
