There are few Muslims who can say they had a seat at the President's table, and Dalia Mogahed is one of those rare few. An Egyptian American at the forefront of Muslim Activism for over a decade, Dalia's journey has seen her lecturing at colleges, training law enforcement and eventually, advising the Obama Administration. We trace Dalia's life from a normal Egyptian American childhood to the banality of corporate life up until an event that radically changed the fabric of American society: 9/11. We dig deeper to uncover an inspiring mix of spirituality, hope, desperation and wisdom that drive Dalia to navigating the perplexing maze that is the life of an American Muslim.
