Amal Mohamud, The Diversity Fighter
Amal’s answers will astound you. She works as a student program administrator at a college, while being a community producer at a multicultural Canadian television as well as being a Quran teacher for children. On top of her three jobs, she studied business administration with her true passion being television. Her main reason for getting out of bed every morning is to promote diversity and share the stories of those from different backgrounds. All of this is very amazing and her answers to the Hijabies Confessions are unforgettable.
