Here's the description of her channel:

Muslimah of The WEST an INFJ shares what it's like to be a solo female American Muslim revert living in the West, and traveling throughout the world. Follow for personal Vlogs, Islamic Fashion, Quran Discussion, Arabic Cooking, Revert Tips for Life, and Travel Adventures.

Hello friends, I have been a New Muslim since 2016. I come from a strong lifelong relationship with GOD/ALLAH, the one and only God. I have studied many scriptures from all of the Prophets, but I concentrate on the Quran daily. My family is a mix of Christians and non-believers. With my channel I hope to enlighten people about the life and struggles of a Muslim convert/revert living in the West and share my life experiences and information with other reverts, as well as born Muslims around our world. My hope is to build bridges of understanding, love and acceptance for all people and show the light of Islam to the world.
