If you missed the announcement on our Facebook page yesterday, I’m set to release my debut book, “MUSLIM GIRL: A COMING OF AGE,” which will be out with Simon & Schuster on Oct. 18, 2016.
What has been the experience of the American Muslim Girl in a post-9/11 era? What would it be like with Donald J. Trump? Now you can have the chronicle of one of the most significant moments in our modern history right on your book shelf.
It’s the first book celebrating the historic journey of the #MuslimGirlArmy, and I could not be prouder that it will fossilize our undeserving struggle of today onto bookshelves for all eternity.
I’m well aware of my role as The Token Muslim Girl these days. All I can do is be as honest about my own personal experiences as possible, rep our community to the absolute best of my ability, and continue fighting to create new opportunities and milestones for us to amplify the many diverse and powerful voices that make up who we are. Like Muslim Girl, I stand on the shoulders of giants, and we walk in the tradition of a long line of Muslim women speaking truth to power against any and all odds.
Our journey could not have gotten this far without the many incredible women and friends that I have been blessed to work with and whose support has been our lifeblood. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for bringing us to this moment. I really hope you enjoy the ride.
You can pre-order this book now on all major book sellers!
