The Muslim Writers Collective is a grassroots initiative dedicated to promoting storytelling in the Muslim American community. I was a founding member of the Bay Area chapter in 2014 and have been a board member of the D.C. chapter since 2016. We organize monthly open mics, writing workshops and circles, an annual StorySlam competition and other collaborative events that promote the arts, diversity and community. Check us out!


I created this day-long wellness retreat with three other women who wanted to create a healing and empowering space for Muslim women through life coaching, yoga, art and creative writing. Our first one was in August 2019 and we hope to hold future ones.


The Sanctuaries is a D.C.-based nonprofit that activates artists to build power, shift culture, and heal spirits through community organizing and social movements. I was a member of the Performance and Multidisciplinary arts teams.
