During her interview with Lance Armstrong in her New Forward podcast, Mia stated: 'Everything went out of control when the Islamic State started to threaten me, that's when I withdrew'. In many of the scenes, she was wearing a hijab which is part of the traditional female Muslim cover.
She said 'Looking back, I didn't know what I was thinking...I was 21, and I was stupid. This was not what I was trying to do whatsoever. I just wanted to let loose and rebel a little bit.'
