About the Author

Huda Fahmy was born in Detroit, MI and attended the University of Michigan where she majored in English and minored in Political Science with hopes of one day becoming a lawyer. She finished one year of law school before shifting to education. She taught English to middle and high schoolers for eight years before she started writing about her experiences as a visibly Muslim woman in America and was encouraged by her older sister to turn these stories into comics. Huda, her husband Gehad, and their son reside in Houston, Texas.


"Yes, I'm Hot in This doesn't shy away from the differences between some Muslim-American experiences and the rest of the population, but it does go to great lengths to make those experiences part of the human condition."

--Houston Chronicle
"A breath of fresh air."--Muslimah Media Watch
"The book does something an Instagram account simply cannot, which is provide a continuous narrative that flows seamlessly (and humorously) through every emotion experienced by the modern woman wearing hijab. Fahmy illustrates her experiences with amiable, unreserved honesty. The book is an incredibly enjoyable read, too... .Fahmy manages to express all of the struggles she experiences with unabashed zest ... at the same time, she asserts that she isn't defined by these struggles."

--Haute Hijab
"Both hilarious and heartbreaking."--HJ Book Blog

"Nothing unites us quite like comedy. Dive into another perspective with this delightful collection of comics from Huda Fahmy about the realities of wearing a hijab and some of the ridiculous questions she gets asked about it."

"Yes, I'm Hot in This tackles universal feelings from an point of view we don't hear from nearly enough ... Huda's clever comics demonstrate humor's ability to bring us together, no matter how different we may appear on the surface."

--Ashley Karlen
"This book was pretty wonderful ... a very realistic, raw, and true commentary on the world today regarding how many Americans treat other cultures unfairly."

--Reader Fox
"A gift for all the well-meaning but clueless people in your life; it tackles serious topics with humor and grace."

--Muslim Reads
"A hilarious comic collection...both entertaining and informative."--Jill Emmett
