Syrian-American Alawa on Forbes List of Amazing Change-Makers

Laila Alawa, an American Muslim of Syrian origin, has been selected among the amazing change-makers in this year’s Forbes #30Under30 list.

The 24-year-old lady is the co-founder and CEO of The Tempest, a website, which gathers 500,000 hits per month.  Alawa originally geared her website toward Muslim women but pivoted to incorporate women of all ethnic backgrounds. The site has more than 250 contributors around the world — 40% of whom are Muslim.

She is also the host of a critically-acclaimed podcast called The Expose, where she picks apart cultural norms, taboos and societal issues with her co-hosts and important figures such as Hollywood director Lexi Alexander, Mona Haydar, Kathy Benjamin, and Emilie Lawrence. Laila presented a TedX Talk, The Secret Behind World Domination, and is amongst the 40 Women to Watch list...
