Amani is the founder and editor-in-chief of Muslim Girl, the most-read platform for Muslim women’s voices in the West.
Muslim Girl is reclaiming the narrative of Muslim women in Western media, emerging at the forefront of Muslim women’s issues in mainstream media with its own unprecedented columns in outlets like Teen Vogue, Fortune, and HuffPo. Muslim Girl became the first Muslim company to make the “Forbes 30 Under 30” list in 2016 and launched the inaugural Muslim Women’s Day on March 27, 2017.
Amani became the first veiled woman to be honored in the media category, and rang the NASDAQ Opening Bell in 2016. She was named one of Teen Vogue’s “New Faces of Feminism” and by The Economist as a “Generation Prophet”. Amani was invited by Michelle Obama to speak at the inaugural U.S. State of Women Summit. Her first book, Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age was released in October, and selected as an “Editor’s Pick” on The New York Times Bestsellers’ List. She also debuted “Uncovered” on MTV Snapchat Discover.
