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

These porcelain mugs by Sean Forest Roberts ( @forestceramicco ) are equal parts artistic exploration and science experiment. “The most important aspect of my studio practice is constant exploration, which is definitely derived from my background in science,” says Sean, who spent four years working in chemistry labs. For the last three years, however, Sean has experimented with porcelain pots by layering different colored clay and handcarving them to reveal the colors underneath. “What’s so captivating for me is the ability to make functional artwork – cups, mugs and bowls that can be used and enjoyed every day,” Sean says. Today on our IGTV channel, Sean shows us how he makes his handcarved creations. Video by @forestceramicco

Artist Sean “Hula” Yoro ( @the_hula ) first made waves in the art world by combining his loves of surfing and painting. 👋 In his first-ever mural series, he paddled out to paint along ocean walls. “There is rarely one process I use, but I enjoy the new challenges every site brings,” says Sean. “Since the start of my career, I have always drawn my inspiration back to my Hawaiian upbringing in the unique melting pot of island culture,” says the artist from Kahalu’u, Hawaii. “One value that has always stuck with me no matter where I have moved to is the term we call ‘kuleana.’ It is the responsibility we are taught as kids to know your role and responsibility in society for the better of your community.” This post is in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, celebrated every May in the United States. #APAheritagemonth Photo by @the_hula

“I wasn’t sure what was going on with my health, so I put out a post that said, ‘I’m under construction,’” explains actress Sasha Pieterse ( @sashapieterse ), who stars in the TV show “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” ( @prettylittleliars ). “I’m so glad I did because it was the first #RealConvo that I had on Instagram, and it was basically saying that nobody’s perfect, everybody goes through things in life. I think the more that we talk about things the less it will feel taboo.” May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States.
