Saliyah Muhammad was featured in "Teenage Documentarians Show the Power of Photography," a New York Times Lens Blog piece by Gareth Smit:
"'It requires a lot of thinking and creativity,' said Saliyah Mohammed, 13, who has been taking classes at the Bronx Documentary Center only since late last year but has already decided that photography will be part of her future. 'It’s not just about pressing a button and hoping that it comes out right. I think it’s something that is going to last forever. I don’t think I’m going to give up on this.'"
