I am a film student at Montclair State University. I am in my last year and looking to fund my Thesis project.

I am the first in my family to pursue higher education and graduate, and I am insanely excited to get this story out. 

This story is one I hold very close to my heart. I have written Undefined to tell the all too common story of growning up Black, Female, and Muslim in a society that praises the opposite. 

I am taking a big chance in not only telling this story through film, but musically also. Your donations would help me rent equipment, feed my crew, provide transportation, and most importantly make this film be the best it can be. 

I feel that even if you've never experienced these prejudices, it's nice to have an insight on their exsitence. I hope you're will to help, not only me, but the thousands of girls stories that are being over looked in our society. Thank you so much!

Throughout my life I have been blessed with the opportunity to hone my craft as a filmmaker and work closely with professionals to learn to create compelling stories that connect us closer as a society. Undefined: A Muslim-American Musical was conceived one year ago, after life-long experience observing people in various communities striving to identify themselves.

Undefined: A Muslim-American Musical tells the story of a college graduate defining her identity as an African American, a Muslim, and a woman - in America. This project is meant to serve as insight into another aspect of the American experience. Too often, coming of age stories feature the same racial, religious tropes about a girl finding love. This film is about self-discovery, identity, and family, something I believe, we, as Americans, all experience differently. This is one of the many versions of the same story, the American experience.
