Shireen Qudosi founded Qudosi Chronicles post 9-11 when realizing not enough Muslims were speaking out about the community’s shortcomings.

Shireen has been published in several leading industry publications, including PJ Media, Middle East Forum, Illume, among others. She’s also hosted several talks on Islam for the San Diego community.
