About Shaymaa Ismaa’eel

Her smile in the face of bigotry was seen and felt around the world. Shaymaa Ismaa’eel became a global icon for combating hatred with love, inspired by her Prophet’s saying, "smile is charity." To combat the racist sentiments being spewed by protesters, Shaymaa flashed a smile and a peace sign in front of the haters, and her selfie unwittingly spawned a global viral sensation. Amassing 800K+ likes between her Instagram and Tweet, the response energized Shaymaa to further Muslim education and activist efforts through dialogue about hijab and religious beliefs, makeup vlogs and Muslim fashion on Instagram and YouTube, always maintaining her trademark positivity.
