This month is really about what it means to be human – the unmanufactured, the not for social media humanity. Here are my media picks for this July:

  1. National Geographic, July 2017 — In the July 2017 Issue of National Geographic (p. 124) there is an absolutely mesmerizing article (“The Last Honey Hunter”) about black market honey collection in Nepal. Here are people who have made an entire life out of what most of us consider fears and phobias and the pursue their lives without trepidation. CLICK HERE to learn more!

  1. The Big Sick — While I’m not always fan of the Apatow troupe, I found myself literally cracking up in the movie theater with Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan as Emily Gordon. Holly Hunter gives an incredible performance, Aidy Bryant (who I’m a huge fan of on Saturday Night Live) is comedically flawless, and I really enjoyed the flaws, choices, and things that come up when you craft a movie from real experience. CLICK HERE to learn more!
  2. Allure Magazine, July 2017 — The Allure cover story of July is Halima Adem. The 19-year-old Muslim model is “the face of things to com” – breaking stereotypes and our whole concept of what fashion is. I learned that Dolce & Gabbana has a line of hijabs, as does Nike (“a lightweight Pro Hijab”). CLICK HERE to learn more!From the article: “She doesn’t live a symbolic life; she lives a human life. If there is symbolism to be read into her, it is our work, not hers.”
