Born and raised in Venezuela, Seemi Choudry is the daughter of Pakistani immigrants who moved with her family to Chicago at the turn of the century. We discuss the intersections of identity, religion, faith, and her work as a writer. 

“Basically to sum that up is like, how can you be both Latina and Muslim? You know, that doesn’t exist. And the truth of the matter is that it does exist and, and it’s very common. But it’s not dominant culture, right?
