Growing up half time in the United States and half time in Pakistan, Ghazi finds herself joining Muslim women in being stereotyped at the same time they are expected to be spokespeople for a peaceful Islam. It is those like herself, she says, or “the Muslims we cannot see,” who are bearing the burden of the world. As the mother of a 4-year-old daughter and a former Stanford Knight Fellow, Ghazi says it is time to change the conversation about what it means to be Muslim today.
