Eating out used to be a delicacy. I once longed for the rare weekends when my family would go out to a restaurant like Olive Garden or even a fast food chain like Taco Bell. I shake my head when I remember how I once gagged at the food my mom spent hours preparing for us. Home-cooked Gujarati meals — the same meals I rejected years ago by sticking out my tongue — is now a blessing I’m rarely afforded, but it’s one that I humbly accept when I get the chance.

Dearborn, Michigan is the epicenter of Muslim/Arab American culture. It is a microcosm of the Middle East with people from every Arab country (i.e. Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, etc). There is such a diverse presence of nationalities and cultures that all contribute their own traditions while sharing similar traditions with other nationalities there . Although one might think that in this cultural hub we all have similar stories as minorities, we don’t.

My most liked picture on Instagram is from the day I got into college. The photo features me walking down Hill Street past The Ross School of Business on game day, decked out in Michigan apparel. My head is turned to face the camera, offering a subtle closed-mouth smile. The caption read a simple, yet clever, “going blue.” The post was fitting for the moment — I had dreamed of getting into the University of Michigan since I was a little girl. This picture perfectly, yet at the same time, nonchalantly, tried to capture the emotion of my acceptance.
