Just like what happened to my people after 9/11. Every Arab man was targeted, questioned, followed, surveilled. They saw us not as humans, but as this hand of a monster that hated America. I saw people in my community act out in ways they never would have if they hadn't been treated so unjustly. Whatever you imagine people might have done, just don't lose faith in their humanity, because when you do, that's when you make the monster.

Character Biography

Nimah Amin is seen at first as a conservative Muslim who keeps her private life behind closed doors. She has a twin sister, Raina Amin. They masquerade as one person, secretly switching positions. After they are revealed as two people, it is seen Nimah does not wear the hijab (headscarf) and is less religious than Raina. But Nimah had to wear the hijab to match her sister's appearance, and keep up the act. She has a deep love for America, but is constantly being profiled and mistreated as a result of her religion. Naturally, this becomes increasingly frustrating and Nimah has learnt to respond by isolating herself. Aloof and secretive, she often appears disinterested and mysterious to others. Has she become tired of loving a country that doesn't trust her? This could explain why she is much harder on herself than others and is constantly determined to reach her impossibly high standards. She might be considered confrontational but never guilty of cowardice. She is observant, analytical and extremely adverse to being manipulated. Personally recruited by FBI training director, Miranda, is she hiding bigger secrets from Alex Parrish and the rest of her classmates at Quantico?
