Unashamed: Musings of a Fat, Black Muslim by Leah Vernon


So I had no clue who Leah Vernon was. Yes, I had a vague recollection of seeing her somewhere, but I cannot say I am part of her fans. Fashion isn't really my thing, and though I appreciate what she does, I cannot say that I understand this artistic avenue as much as I understand writing.

And, masha Allah, she can write. I was intrigued, I had all the feels. This book is outstanding in the way that it showcases a Muslim life and experience that is more common than we often want to admit. Without holding back she shares all the good AND the bad, and the difficulties she had to overcome to become who she is today: an influencer. And by God, she deserves it all.
