Amani Al-Khatahtbeh is the founder and editor-in-chief of Muslim Girl, the most read platform for Muslim women’s voices in the country. Reclaiming the Muslim women's narrative in Western media with its own unprecedented columns in outlets like Teen Vogue, Fortune, and Huffington Post, Muslim Girl is currently forging a new path by emerging at the forefront of Muslim women's issues in mainstream coverage. It became the first Muslim company to make the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2016. Amani became the first veiled woman to be honored in the media category and rang the NASDAQ Opening Bell in 2016. She was named one of Teen Vogue's "New Faces of Feminism" in its February 2016 issue and by The Economist as a “Generation Propeht” in their December 2016 issue. Amani was invited by Michelle Obama as a speaker at the inaugural U.S. State of Women Summit. Her first book, “Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age” was released with Simon & Schuster in October 2016.
