The Low Dao 64: Rania

In this podcast, Rania gives us the lowdown on her experiences living in the US.

“People needn’t be suspicious of me solely due to my Middle Eastern appearance, and instead of projecting a silly stereotype on me, they could approach me. As a person who lives in the US, my daily concerns don’t vary all that much from [others]. Regardless of the stance that says “Muslims can’t be part of American society because they’re Muslims!”– we already are part of it!

We have been for years now. Embracing us is not impossible, and for us to cope with American culture and values without losing our own completely is also not impossible.”
