I am in a weekly Bosnian magazine called Slobodna Bosna! The article discusses my short films, peformance art projects and my forthcoming project Allah Earth: The Cycle of Life (Deaf ASL poetry/dance/mime) which I hope to bring to Sarajevo someday in the future. Thanks to my dear friend Amir Telibechirowich, a journalist from Bosnia, who wrote this article to help raise awareness about my works; I appreciate it very much.
I was recently interviewed by an Asian American magazine, As [I] Am. We talked about my filmmaking projects, my childhood growing up being Deaf, South Asian, and Muslim, and my video projects in India and Mexico. Please check it out and be sure to follow @As [I] Am and support their website! Thank you.
Poor Magazine has published a new interview with me. Here, I talk about my struggles as a Deaf filmmaker and performer. I also talk about how I incorporate my Indian culture and deaf identity into my works (film, theatre, poetry, performance).
Many thanks to Leroy Moore of Krip-Hop Nation for asking me to do the interview!

Here is an article from London, UK about Muslim Women Artists in the public space and censorship. I was asked by Sara Yasin (the writer of the article) for a quote, so I shared my experience of being a Deaf Muslim Woman Artist, Filmmaker & Playwright facing constant rejection and denial from the arts world. Please check it out! Thanks.
Aquí es un articulo sobre me, escrito por un amigo en Bolivia, América del Sur. Estoy muy feliz porque tengo mucho respeto por los y las Bolivian@s. También, tengo mucho interés en las muchas culturas de Bolivia y la historia del país. Deseo que yo tendré un oportunidad a viajar a Bolivia y realizar un cortometraje creativo con los y las sordos, y los y las indígenos. No sé cuando, pero ... un día. ((((OJALA))))

Newtopia Magazine asked me and other artists / writers how the year 2012 had turned out. Personally for me, the year was filled with many wonderful and tragic things. I had a great opportunity working with other artists and musicians, but I've also had some bad moments through-out the year.
You can check out my response.
Whore! Magazine has published an interview with me for Issue #3. Checkkkk it out!
