Queen of the Universe Pageant 2013
After Fasha participated in the 2013 Queen of the Universe Pageant as Miss Egypt, she came under attack on social media, with some people claiming that Fasha had inappropritately stated she was winner of the Miss Egypt title for 2013. Fasha publicly clarified that she never claimed this title on behalf of Egypt's official pageant, adding that Egypt did not even hold a Miss Egypt Pageant in 2013. She said she had stated from the beginning that she was Miss Egypt from the Queen of the Universe Pageant in Beverly Hills.
She was criticized for having served in the U.S. military, not being beautiful enough for a beauty pageant, and not being "Egyptian enough". "Beauty pageants aren't just about beauty, they are also about morals, ethics, accomplishments and more," she said in response. She was also quoted as saying she wanted to be "a voice for Egyptian women and children, as well as for other countries around the world."
In January 2015, Fasha was the headlining motivational speaker for the TEDx Benha event in Egypt and gave a talk titled “Qualify Your Sources.” a speech teaching people to ask yourself if the person who is judging or discouaging you in your life is a qualified, reliable and trustworthy source or someone who should be disregarded due to their lack of knowledge and experience" 
Fasha released a video in 2014 entitled "Support Egypt with a Fun Dance" during the Egyptian president election which was viewed over 200 thousand times. Her last video "Wet to Dry Flat Iron Tutorial GONE WRONG FAIL" was featured in articles by the website of Sofía Vergara, Flama, many national Egyptian newspapers and she has appeared in television show Right This Minute.
