As an immigrant, you automatically have two homes, or maybe one home and a house. Either way, the question “where do I find my place and comfort within these homes” seems to never end.
Huda Yaseen was born in Iraq and immigrated to the U.S. where she resides in Michigan. Whether in books, T.V. shows, or 45-minute long YouTube documentaries, Huda cuddles up in a special corner of her colorful room where she immerses herself in a world of thriller, romance, and mystery. She is passionate about change making and bringing her voice to the table. She adores cats, is scared of goats, loves K-dramas and finds a hobby in journaling.
As an immigrant Arab of Iraqi heritage, often my culture and identity is infamously associated with only negative connotations that bleed into how it is represented in the media. So often, when I do look for representation I find these false depictions of what I am supposed to be. But I am not that, so I wanted to showcase the beauty of being an Arab to the world and correct these stereotypes.
