  • Fear of being too loud
  • Fear of being too quiet
  • Fear of being hurt — professionally, academically, personally for being too loud or too quiet. Never knowing until it was too late, but always stuck
  • Fear of being Othered — a Muslim surname that marks me from Elsewhere
  • Fear of deportation under the Trump-era Muslim ban and/or losing citizenship
  • Fear of not knowing where I belong, truly belong, both within my own community and under Whiteness externally
