Raneem, age 13

ABOUT RANEEM:
I’m 13, I’m Muslim. I like making stuff like crochet, knitting, beading, cooking and more. I like writing movies, songs, and sometimes poems. I like to read romantic books. I hate that my eyes are not green like my dads even though I look exactly like him. My favorite subject is math.

ABOUT RANEEM’S FILM PROJECT:
TITLE: Growing Up Muslim
SUBJECT: On what it’s like being a Muslim kid in America

I am doing this film to show what it’s like for a Muslim kid growing up in America. To talk about things like the hijab (head scarf) and why we wear it and to just give an idea of what our lives are really like. Kids ask me alot of questions, so I think it will be very interesting and also fun.

RANEEM ON SOCIAL-JUSTICE FILMS:
I think it’s important to make social-justice films so people can see the truth about what’s really happening.

WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP:
– Screenwriter/Director
– Fashion Designer
– Teacher

FAVORITE ROLE MODEL: My parents
