This image was take when I felt the music inside my heart.
I am first generation Arab-American my home land is Ir bid, Jordan. My family has been in the United States for over twenty years. As a first generation Muslim woman I have faced some challenges in my life from sexual abuse from my father to having my mother being diagnose with Leukemia, and being forced to send her back home because of lacking monetary funds, we could not afford her medical expenses. Through photography I find inspiration in my life because it is the only canvas I have.
