Some of her poems were finalists in literary competitions in journals such as New Letters. Her early poetry was cited in the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Multiethnic American Literature, and she won first prize in the Lucidity Clarity Contest.
They Called Me Mustafa: Memoir of an Immigrant, which she co-wrote with her father and published, was honored at a Massachusetts State House commemoration and was licensed by Alexander Street Press for an electronic database. In 2010 she wrote My Literary Profile: A Memoir, which won an honorable mention from the New England Book Festival 2012.
