“Hasan Minhaj’s eloquence and ability to reflect on micro and macro levels is so inspiring. I feel transformed for the better after spending an hour and change with him and his epic storytelling abilities.” For Wear Your Voice Magazine, June 2017.

“When brown women wear saris, salwar kameez or hijab, they are told to ‘go home.’ But when a white woman does it, she’s celebrated. That’s appropriation.” For Wear Your Voice Magazine, May 2017.
