I grew up being known as the person who’d bring attention to issues globally, no matter the personal cost. During an infamous advertising campaign dedicated to miseducating the American public around Muslim values run by right-wing personalities, I risked my safety to bring the issue to the attention of media outlets nationally.
It is with that energy, passion and incessant persistence that I launched The Tempest - a strategic move to shift the needle on conversations that affect international policy, human rights and personal identity. It is a necessary global solution: a forward-thinking, sometimes-irreverent media platform, run by diverse women.
Instead of discussing the lack of diverse women’s voices in the media, I decided we would be the go-to media outlet for diverse millennial women. The Tempest doesn’t break stereotypes by featuring reactive commentary, it changes perceptions through agency, honest storytelling and multimedia content.
