Yes, I'm Hot in This.

ImamsOnline, One Muslim Woman’s Mission For Better Representation "One of the best ways that we as Muslims can improve our status in the media is to support people who present a more positive outlook of Islam in the West. One such person is a Muslim artist named Huda Fahmy, aka “Yes, I’m Hot in This“. The name is a play on the question that plagues many a hijabi, where non-Muslims will constantly ask us “Aren’t you hot in that?” and I love the way she takes ownership of who she is, and how she’s feeling."
