Writing in Exile

I started a new Medium series called “Memoirs in Self Exile.” It’s intended to be a public journal of sorts for those who are invested in my new journey in the Middle East or just curious to tag along on occasion.

I dedicate this series to all diaspora communities — particularly the African and Palestinian diasporas. We are more alike than we know. May we return to our homelands liberated in mind, body, and spirit.

So make your way over there now to read my first entry, comment, and subscribe for future updates.

Love & light,




muslim. writer. educator.
