Having grown up in New Jersey in the early 2000s, young Amani Al-Khatahtbeh had personally experienced a rise in Islamophobia in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This led her to found MuslimGirl in 2009 when she was just 17. In the beginning, Al-Khatahtbeh and friends from her mosque published blogs on the site. By 2015, the site had in-house staff and readership increased by 90%, with readers both from and outside the Muslim community.

The MuslimGirl team was also behind the #MuslimWomensDay trend that went viral worldwide in March this year. Al-Khatahtbeh has published a book, Muslim Girl, and has also partnered with Teen Vogue for a web series on the issues of concern for young Muslim girls.
