Congrats to @dove @gettyimages and @girlgaze for having Project #ShowUs nominated for a #CannesLions major advertising award. I can’t believe how much impact Project #ShowUs continues to make. 👏 This month my photo of @mehnaza for Project #ShowUs was featured in the June issue of Chatelaine Magazine and the June issue of Glamour Magazine South Africa, as well as being shown in Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus, and Waterloo Station in London, England, a spice girls reunion tour, and more. 😍😍😍

Only Shawn would graduate from Ryerson, then get offered a job at Ryerson the exact same day. I’m a super proud (almost) wifey.

@Plancanada launched their first-ever “Youth-Led Roadmap for Gender Equality in Canada” at @women_deliver this week. I had the privilege of partnering with Plan Canada to photograph the amazing youth who led this at the #YouthforGenderEquality Writers Conference earlier this year which illustrate the pages of this powerful roadmap. I’m so excited to share some of the photographs from our collaboration, I am so inspired by the youth I met. Thank you @apanacci for bringing me on to work on this amazing project. 💕

My mom is the kind of person who tells you you can do anything you want to, and then supports, brainstorms, and sits by your side until you make it happen. Selfless and generous only begin to describe her. Happy Mother’s Day @allisonyoussef 💕 Recent #mediumformatfilm photo taken on #hasselblad500cm #portra400

The Sisters Project is featured on @instagram today for #MonthOfGood. I’m so honoured and excited about this amazing recognition ❤️ ▫️ Posted @withrepost @instagram Photographer Alia Youssef ( @aliayphotography ) created @the.sisters.project when she realized her passion for portraiture could help bring visibility to her community. “Muslim women are often seen as a monolith, and some of the stereotypes associated with us are that we are silent, oppressed and voiceless,” explains Alia, who is from Vancouver, British Columbia, and traveled all over Canada to create these images. “I wanted to create a project that allowed for the diversity of Muslim women to be seen, and for our individual stories to be elevated, celebrated and shared.” Tune in to today’s story to learn more about Alia and her inspiring project. ✨ Right now, Alia and millions of people around the world are celebrating the holy month of #Ramadan , a month of prayer, giving and kindness. Share your moments of everyday kindness and good — and all your Ramadan celebrations — using the hashtag #MonthOfGood. Photos by @the.sisters.project
