About the Author: Mona Hagmagid

This webpage is titled Daughter of Diaspora because in many ways I, like other multi cultural American Muslim women, feel fragmented and distanced from my ancestors, while searching for my own place in the world.

I am a Sudanese and Afro-American woman from Northern Virginia. I am a poet, spoken word writer, performer, and university student studying Philosophy and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. I write, read, and think often and so I have decided to make room for myself to share it. Please read and feel free to share with anyone who you think might also be looking to piece back together where they have come from and who they are trying to be.

May God’s peace and blessing descend upon my beloved Prophet and may He shower you with good health, good faith, and good people who nurture and love you always.
