Summary
Muslim people in Australia come from over seventy countries and represent a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences. Yet we are constantly bombarded by media stories feeding one negative stereotype. What is it really like to grow up Muslim in Australia? In this book, famous and not-so-famous Muslim-Australians tell their stories in their own voices. The migrant, the convert, the participant in an arranged marriage - these are all familiar images associated with Muslim people. But delve deeper and there are many other stories: the young female boxer entering the ring for her first professional bout; a ten year old boy who renounces religion; a young woman struggling to reconcile her sexual identity with her faith. These honest and heartfelt stories will resonate with all readers, providing different snapshots of Muslim life in Australia, dispelling myths and stereotypes, and above all celebrating diversity, achievement, courage and determination. Contributors include: Randa Abdel-Fattah, Michael Mohammed Ahmad, Tanveer Ahmad, Ali Alizadeh, Amal Awad, Tasneem Chopra, Arwa El Masri, Hazem El Masri, Bianca Elmir, Sabrina Houssami, Alyena Mohummadally, Irfan Yusuf
