Season #1 of All-American Muslim is over, and after all is said and done, I can honestly say…what a ride! An adventure filled with excitement, satisfaction, controversy, praise, hate and of course, Islamophobia.
I can honestly say that the three months I spent in NYC working on the show, taught me so much. The pace of it all, the speed with which we shifted strategy, thought on our feet, mobilized media, organizations, influencers… the reach we were able to have in the online space through relentless social media activity. An unforgettable experience, and certainly full of unexpected twists and turns. Who would have imagined that one reality show would create so much controversy and spark something so much bigger and more meaningful that I’m proud to have been a part.
