I was lucky enough to be one of the 45 Men to be featured in this new book: “All-American: 45 American Men on Being Muslim“.
I talk about how I became interested in Media Activism work and my struggles (and accomplishments) as the youngest member of my masjid board. The title of my essay is called “The Trouble Maker.” It will hopefully be an entertaining and educational read for everyone.
