In her free time, you can catch Rahma with a cup of coffee somewhere around the world, posting about her coffee chronicles.
Rahma’s journey with hijab began in 2019 and helped inspire her thesis topic. The Modest Memoirs is a podcast dedicated to conversations surrounding the hijab. Rahma takes you on a journey of hijab through the stories of some incredible hijabi women in different countries and cultures. Hijabi women face a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions and in each episode, Rahma dives into topics and scenarios to unpack some of the negative connotations as well as the positive ones that surround hijabi women. With every hardship in this thesis process, Rahma is overwhelmed with joy at the debut of her podcast series.
