112. Sahar Ullah (Director, Hijabi Monologues)

Sahar Ishtiaque Ullah is the writer, co-founder and sometimes director for the Hijabi Monologues project.  Born and raised in South Florida, Sahar received her BA from the University of Miami, majoring in English, Religious Studies and Political Science and her MA in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Chicago.  She then went on to study at the American University in Cairo for two years as a CASA I and II Fellow, supplementing her studies by exploring Cairo and other cities within the region.  In addition to speaking Arabic, she can hold an unrefined conversation in Bengali and not-so-secretly wishes to recover the Spanish she learned to love in public school.  For over ten years, she organized study circles for Muslim teenagers, women and children from whom she learned the priceless value of “I don’t know” and lived experiences.
