Fashion and Identity: Representation, Self- Esteem and the Muslim-American Narrative is a workshop series designed to explore the direct correlation between awareness, agency, and perception of dress and self-esteem established with ownership of one's authentic narrative. Increased self-esteem and sense of self allows for young Muslim-American women to more readily step into leadership roles, ultimately contributing to positive and productive cohesion in communities and society—Muslim-American as well as the broader society-at-large.
