Huda Fahmy is a cartoonist and creator of the hilarious web-comic series ‘Yes, I’m hot in this’.
The comic humorously portrays the life of an American Muslim woman wearing the hijab and is used as a platform to address misconception people have about women who wear the hijab.
Huda started the web-comics in March 2017, in reference to a common question she would get asked. Today, via her popular Instagram page, ‘Yes I’m hot in this’ has become a platform to share stories about Muslim life inspired by her own personal experiences.
In December 2018, Huda released her first book titled, ‘Yes, I'm Hot in This: The Hilarious Truth about Life in a Hijab’. The book has already received many positive reviews, with many non-Muslims readers stating that the book helped them appreciate and understand different cultures and a way of life.
In the episode, we speak to Huda about how the self-taught cartoonist began the comic series, the impact that the comic has had, where does she get her inspiration from, the experience of releasing her own book and so much more!
We had a fun speaking with Huda and learning about the world of creating comics and how she breaks down barriers via her comics!
