    (Special Segment) The Whole Muslim: Zaakirah Nayyar

    In this special interview segment I call, "The Whole Muslim", I interview professional photographer, published author and Retinoblastoma cancer survivor, Zaakirah Muhammad. We talk about how despite losing her right eye and hearing in both ears because of her cancer, she has always lived her best life and established herself as a African American Muslim woman in the field of photography and continues to branch out professionally. You can find Zaakirah on social media on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/illuminousone/), Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/illuminousone/). Her professional and podcast website is: http://zaakirahnayyar.com/
