American Muslim Life on Campus


I was interviewed by the Editor of the Student Union section of the Voice of America, Jessica Stahl, about the Muslim life on U.S. Colleges and Universities.

Two different posts were covered on this topic. Please take a moment and read these, I really like how it turned out to be. The interview videos of other students are pretty informative as well.

Part1: We are not Terrorist: Muslim Experiences on Campus

Deals with stereotypes, racism, looking like “un-american” or “oppressed” what ever that may mean!

Part2: Dispelling Myths About Hijab, Daily Prayers, and Other Practicalities of Muslim Life on Campus

Deals with how Hijab is perceived and myths about it, issue of Salah (Prayer) and Food.

Please let me know what you think, thanks.

The Student Union Blog section of the VOA covers the student life of people from different countries and cultures. Pretty interesting blog section, make sure you check it out and share especially these two posts with others!!

Peace.

  1. Thanks Umer! I really enjoyed talking with you, and I’m glad you’re happy with how it turned out. All the students I spoke with, yourself included, were so open and honest and willing to share their experiences. It was great, and I learned a lot from everyone.
