Randa Abdel-Fattah

Current Home: Sydney, Australia

Randa Abdel-Fattah
An Australian-born-Muslim-Palestinian-Egyptian, Randa Abdel-Fattah based her first novel, Does My Head Look Big in This? on her own experiences. The story is about an Australian Muslim teenage girl who decides to wear the hijab, or headscarf, full time and the cultural ramifications that follow. Randa, herself, was a teen when she decided to wear the hijab full-time. "I wrote Does My Head Look Big in This? because I wanted to allow readers to step into the world of an average Muslim teenage girl born in the West," says Randa. "I wanted to allow readers to identify with her experiences and journey, and realize she is not a walking headline or stereotype."

Randa Abdel-Fattah is a lawyer and lives in Sydney, Australia with her family.
