Assalamu alaykum (peace be upon you)! My name is Kyra Lawson, but people call me Allysa (my middle name). I’m 19 years-old and was born and raised in Pennsylvania. I moved to Staten Island in the summer of 2016. I love education and learning; always had a 4.0 (sometimes 4.1) GPA… not to brag or anything (jokes!). I’m an animal lover, especially rabbits and cows. I’m also a revert Muslim. I reverted May 1, 2014. I got an Islamic marriage at 17 and had my little girl, Jannah, Febuary 22, 2017. During my senior year I worked at Cracker Barrel as a hostess. It was such an amazing job. Now that I moved and have a child, I am a stay-at-home mommy. Our journey is rough as we are young and still getting ourselves stable, but having our little family to support each other through every twist and turn makes every difficulty worth it.
I started this blog to share and document my journey as a young, stay-at-home mom. To show that even if it’s hard, it’s definitely not impossible. I made this blog to be a community full of love and support for each and every reader… also to shed some light on Muslims when Islamophobia is at such an extreme high right now. So hi. Welcome to my family. I hope at least one word I speak helps someone out in shaa Allah (God willing). ❤︎
I post every Monday and Thursday!
