⛰️ Amira the Wanderlust Wants Muslim Women To Explore the Outdoors


The travel industry, like so many industries, has had to reckon with its lack of diversity over the past few years. As a result, travel influencers of color have made space for themselves in a space that has historically excluded them and encouraged other marginalized travelers to do the same.

One major outlet for these creators has been Instagram, a platform that Amira the Wanderlust has used to cultivate a community of fellow Muslim female adventurers. Passionfruit contributor Rahma Khan spoke with the creator about her page, her new travel group, and how she practices her faith in the outdoors.
