Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, MuslimGirl founder and editor in chief, joined several Forbes honorees Monday morning as she rang the opening bell at the Nasdaq in New York City, N.Y. The ceremony took place at the major commercial sector in Times Square, and was showcased on the Nasdaq MarketSite Tower.
This historic moment marked a hijab-clad woman setting new precedents for Muslim women globally as they are actively shaping the face of Islam in American media.
Earlier this month, Amani made the annual Forbes 30 Under 30 list, which showcases 600 of the world’s leading young entrepreneurs and change-makers.
She became the first veiled Musilm woman to be recognized in the media category and MuslimGirl the first Muslim company to ever make the list.
Next up: MuslimGirl’s own IPO? ????
