I love that MuslimFest brings the community together in celebration. Celebration of each other’s talents, culture, innovation, strengths and more. It’s a great time to be Muslim and MuslimFest is here to show you why! My personal favorite place to check out is the Art Exhibit. Make sure to stop by and chat with volunteers and artists.

Fun Fact: I’m learning to play the Acoustic Guitar.

If there was a word in the English language that would define teamwork, unity, cooperation, fun, excitement, love, and acceptance, it would probably be  MuslimFest. MuslimFest to me is an initiative that highlights what can be achieved by uniting our youth and putting into action some of the most fantastic ideas from our young stars.
My most memorable MuslimFest moment would be the heavy rainfall that hit us in MuslimFest 2015. It was pure havoc for an hour followed by the most wonderful and positive atmosphere I’d ever seen in a MuslimFest crowd.

MuslimFest is more than just a festival to me. Being part of most of the behind the scenes work, it’s beautiful watching the festival come together and seeing the hard work we’ve done. MuslimFest is amazing it brings us together and shows that there is more to us than what the media shows. Giving back to our community and taking part in this festival brings me so much joy and my passion for MuslimFest just greater year by year.

MuslimFest to me is an event unlike no other. It’s this spirit of community and love that’s free for anyone from anywhere to experience. It’s a weekend that’s filled with memories, laughter, great food, amazing entertainment and so much more. And to know that you play a part, no matter how small in making it happen year after year, that’s one of the best feelings in the world!

Muslimfest to me is a place where I can grow mentally, physically and become a leader by surrounding myself with extremely hard working and very bright individuals. MuslimFest shows the world who Muslims really are and gives Muslim artists the opportunity to show the world who they are and share whatever their art is.  I cannot be more happy to be a part of something this great.

Most memorable time at MuslimFest: Last year when it rained on Sunday(2nd day of the festival), my volunteers came together as a team, didn’t panic, had fun and worked hard!

Fun Fact: I think my best feature is finding opportunities where ever they are.
