The 29-year-old Jordanian-American Muslim activist Amani Khatahtbeh spoke to Roya News English about her experience in being a Muslim female living in the US.

She began the interview by speaking about her experience as she grew up through extreme propaganda about the Middle East and the Muslim people.

Khatahtbeh said that when she was a child, the 9/11 tragedy happened, which according to her, created an environment in America where it made her feel like she was being forced to distance herself from her identity as an Arab and a Muslim woman.

However, at the age of 13, everything changed for her.
