At the point when gotten some information about her reaction to being on the spread, Khatib said that she didn’t anticipate that a reaction will her mail by any stretch of the imagination.
“I sense that I have to speak to the underrepresented,” she said. “We if all be acknowledged regardless of your personality, regardless of your race, regardless of your sexuality, and regardless of your religion. We’re all intersection the same completion line, truly and allegorically.”
Khatib included that despite the fact that there’s a “negative atmosphere with all the talk about Muslims” at this moment, she trusts that, particularly as the presidential decision approaches, her spread can create an impression about Muslims in the US. “It’s gotten an extraordinary reaction and there have been no negative remarks yet,” Buzzfeed reported.
“We are here, we are available, and we are in these fields pretty much as whatever other competitors may be,” Khatib further included.
