Joanna Ali-Karamali (played by Swati Kapila, winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy at LA Web Fest) is a young dating devout Muslim living on her own in Downtown Los Angeles. Orphaned at a young age she has only herself as a role model to stay true to her faith. As she begins a relationship with Ross, she questions her values as she has known them her whole life. Does she preserve her virginity? Should she wear the hijab? Can she have cleavage while wearing the hijab? What does Joanna actually believe? This video is a compilation of some of our favorite Joanna moments as she pursues love, makes mistakes, and explores her faith in the online comedy Bloomers. Please enjoy & feel free to discuss in the comment section below. 🙂
