    There was a time that I lied about my identity. And I know I'm not the only one. Many do it for different reasons...and here's mine.

Exceptionally relatable

I have the same background as an African American living in Saudi Arabia. If I were to completely throw my own experience out, I’d still relate to this as a woman, as a Muslim, as a Muslim woman, as a black woman, as a black Muslim woman, and as someone from the Middle East. This podcast addresses the realities of culture and religion that are often swept under the rug to maintain a certain image.
