I co-founded Stranger Magic Productions with my friend Yumna Khan.

Our first show, Unfair & Ugly, is now streaming!

We’ve been featured on NBC, Huffpost, Refinery29, and Aljazeera.

We have +300K views… and mostly positive comments!

I also host our talk show, #TodayIMet, a conversation series that goes beyond small talk.

I co-founded Fashion Fighting Famine (2011-2015).

We produced some of the earliest and largest international modest fashions shows!

We encouraged body-positivity and our models were everyday girls of every size.

I coined the phrase ‘modest fashion’ which is now the leading term for this movement.

5 Annual Shows | 3300+ Guests Attended | $47K Donated

We made videos like this and this. And hosted Yuna in concert!
