Meet the First Muslim Hijabi on Masterchef Canada

In March 2018, Reem Ahmed was announced amongst the top 21 cooks participating in MasterChef Canada, where contestants  showcase their culinary talents.

The young Muslim said she wanted to participate in the contest to counter misconceptions surrounding Muslim women who choose to don hijab.

In this video, Ahmed talks about her experience being the first Muslim hijabi contestant on Masterchef Canada.
