See you in a month Toronto ✌️ Leaving town to work on my new project in Edmonton and Vancouver, hang in Vancouver with friends and fam, and marry my best friend.  Next time I see this skyline, I’ll be flying home with a hubby.

    I’m extremely honoured to be nominated for the MAX (Muslim Awards for Excellence) “Artist Of The Year” Award, especially being nominated alongside such great talent of diverse artistic fields. A part of this award includes public voting and support! It would mean so much to me if you could take 2 minutes out of your day to vote for me as Artist of the Year (link in bio), and read about/ vote for the amazing people in the 5 other categories. I began @the.sisters.project 2.5 years ago as a small project that I hoped would show my local community how diverse and amazing Muslim women are. Since then I have photographed 160 women in 12 cities across Canada and it has been seen by millions of people across the world. From being profiled on countless online media publications, to being featured on @instagram , to leading me to work on Project #showus by @dove @gettyimages @girlgaze which was seen in Times Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Oprah Magazine to name a few. This project has given me razor sharp vision to dedicate my career and work towards a future of inclusive and celebratory media for Muslim women and Women of Colour that makes us feel like we all belong to the places we call home. I believe it’s imperative for me as a photographer to amplify the voices and stories of my community members in order to create a world where all are all represented, and we can see ourselves in the stories of others. Being nominated for this award means so much to me because it’s recognition coming from within my own community by an organization that’s doing incredible work for Muslims across the country.
