My Response to the Racist Comments on 9/11

Let us take a moment of silence for those that lost their life on 9/11.

Let us also take a moment of silence for those that lost their life as a result of 9/11.

I never expected to cause as much controversy as I did with my TikTok video, which discussed the backlash Muslim-Americans experienced post September 11th, but it clearly caused a reaction.

Some were supportive of Muslims and my message, many questioned why I chose 9/11 to discuss this topic instead of solely focusing on the deceased victims, and some…


It’s never really enough.

Talk to any entrepreneur, and they’ll tell you the same.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how much success. You strive for more.
