This blog is basically the outward expression of what I spend my days thinking about, my free time being an activist about and my nights dreaming about. I’m an American Muslim of Afro-Arab heritage. I’m a Chicagoan. I love social media. And figure skating. And YA novels. And puns. I’m a news|current events|political science junkie. The thing I probably spend the most amount of time thinking about is the development of Western Muslim identity: how does it happen, what does it mean for the West|East, and how can we actively and positively contribute|engage|love our societies.
This blog features daily links[ies] of news items I find interesting|thought-provoking|stimulating as well as weekly essays. I’m still trying to learn my way through WordPress, so I’ll be experimenting for a while.
I hope you enjoy your time on my site and your feedback is always appreciated!
