American Muslim

An Immigrant’s Journey

Overview: American Muslim: An Immigrant’s Journey is a gripping account of one woman’s search for home and belonging in the United States of America. 

Saima Adil Sitwat emigrated to the United States of America from Pakistan, in 2003. Her immigrant experience was defined, not only by learning the nuances of the American language and culture but also that of the American Muslims. A Muslim by birth, Saima would struggle to find her place within the American as well as the American Muslim community. Along the way, she would become a mother and a community leader. 

American Muslim: An Immigrant’s Journey, is a saga of stretching boundaries and reconciling with the evolving notions of home. But more poignantly, Saima’s story leads us to explore some fundamental questions of our present-day world: What does it mean to be a minority, a Muslim, an immigrant, and a woman in 21st century America?
