Our "Muslims of Windsor" Documentary

Here it is!!! Our documentary about Windsor's Muslim Community! I had so much fun making this with Nuha Elalem. We were so inspired by what we learned and we hope you'll be, too!

Don't forget to share and comment! :) I'd love to know what you think!

NOTE: This documentary is free for viewing on YouTube for the entire month of Ramadan. If you would like to purchase it on DVD, please contact me at asilmoussa17@gmail.com. Your support means everything, thank you!




Much Love,

"Strings" Poetry Video!!

Hello Everyone!

My new poetry video, called "Strings" is finally here!! The poem is about each and every one of us. It's about all those crazy thoughts inside our heads that can tie us down and stop us from living the life we deserve. It's about how we all have the power within us to drown out those words, rise, and most importantly, live freely. 

Be confident and be yourself because you have the power to change the world.

-- If you have any questions, put them in the comments below (or tweet me)!! I'm planning to make a video to answer all your questions! :)

Fun Fact: I was in the sitting in the same uncomfortable position on a hard wooden floor for about 5 hours while filming this video. So for most of that time, my legs were numb and the rest of my body was in severe pain. This definitely made it the hardest video to act out just because I was hurting so much. Somehow, maybe metaphorically, I think that made me connect to the character more though. :)

Thank you so much Nuha Elalem for editing and filming this video!
