This Muslim Writer Gives Voice to Young Hijabis

VIRGINIA – Maryam Durrani, a young author from Virginia, is a child prodigy who wrote her first book at the age of 13, making her one of the youngest authors in America.

After her first novel, Assassin, she published the sequel, Ascendant, at 17. She has now followed it up with the final book in the trilogy, Apprentice.

She is well known online where she writes for young readers, one of her works reaching over half a million reads.

But as VOA‘s Niala Mohammad reports, the hijab-wearing teen defies stereotypes associated with Muslims and girls.
