See Something Say Something

May 11, 2017

The studio is decorated. The corsages are fastened. Someone even came to the episode taping in their high school prom dress. That’s right, it’s the See Something Say Something senior prom. Prom committee co-chairs Ahmed Ali Akbar and Tabir Akhter read our listener stories about praying Maghrib in the limo and rocking traditional clothing. Then they chat with two whip-smart high school seniors — Rahat Huda and Noshin Chowdhury — about choreographed promposals, negotiating with parents, and why prom probably isn’t the most important night of your life. Finally we get tips from BuzzFeed fashion icon Nabiha Syed on halal-ifying your prom look.
