Huda Fahmy grew up in Dearborn, MI, and has loved comics since she was a kid. She attended the University of Michigan where she majored in English. 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. She continues to identify as a hopeless romantic. Her writing and illustrations can be found on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook under the handle @yesimhotinthis.
