Who am I?

Live from the stage/my workspace


I was born in Egypt and brought to Italy a few months after. My parents have been living in this country since the 80’s.

I am currently majoring in International Political Science at the Università degli Studi di Milano. I chose this faculty because I always thought that to be able to help people you had to be inside of the bigger system.

On the 23 of February 2017 I opened this blog to start sharing my view, as a Muslim Hijabi girl living in a western country. I grew up in a society that lacks diversity and representation and I felt like if I didn’t do anything I was being part of the problem.

After one year of successfully blogging I opned a youtube channel to tell the stories of other people just like me.

You can call me an activist, a fashion blogger or an influencer but at the end of the day I am just a Muslim Italian girl!
