Novel (Coming Soon): I Can't Fall For You Written by Dreamer
I’ve never fallen for a guy, not since I started wearing the hijab. But how could I ignore my childhood friend?
If Murad had stayed back in Michigan instead of transferring to my high school, life would have been less complicated.
I wouldn’t have to see him every day, his mischievous smile stirring something within. I wouldn’t have to keep him out of conversations, out of my thoughts.
We both know there is something between us. Jeanne calls it chemistry. My mother would call it temptation. All I know is that it is something I need to avoid.
But Murad doesn’t understand. After all, I’m probably the only girl who has ever ignored him and he’s desperate to change that.
Short Story on Inkpop: 37 Minutes Written by Dreamer
The American Muslim Experience
This is an animation video from the perspective of a Muslim male teenager, or a typical American Muslim. The first half of the video highlights some of the challenges of living in America as a Muslim, but the second half contrasts it with some of the happier moments. I attempted to make it a hopeful and inspirational video for anyone who feels lost or different because of his or her identity.
The video is compiled completely of still images, all hundred or so which I have created using the drawing toolbar in Microsoft PowerPoint, except for several logos I used from the Internet. Because there is no narration or dialogue in the video, it is meant to be reflective and symbolic.
