Today I finally handed in my Honours Thesis!

Thank you so much to all those who assisted in sharing my video and helping me with my research.

And to the inspiring women who participated in my interviews, thank you so much. Thank you for opening up about your experiences and your needs and hopefully I will do you proud.

My topic was about women with hearing impairment from an Australian, Lebanese Muslim background. I was trying to raise awareness about hearing loss in the Lebanese Muslim community, as well as awareness about Islam and different cultures in the Australian “Deaf” community.

During this research journey, I’ve learnt so much about myself, other women, my community and what changes needs to be made for Muslims with hearing impairment so they don’t feel left out or ignored.

I have so many ideas and plans for the future so stay tuned for exciting things to come!

Alhumdillah- All praise be to God.
