90 Day Fiance newcomer Shaeeda Sween had some choice words for critics who assumed she was “broke and desperate” before coming to America.
Shaeeda joined the cast of 90 Day Fiance this season alongside her American fiance, Bilal Hazziez.
The yoga enthusiast from Trinidad and Tobago met Bilal online through mutual friends. Bilal flew to the Caribbean, where they met for the first time in person, and they became engaged after just one week.
Shaeeda soon moved to Bilal’s hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, on her K-1 visa. The couple’s struggles to navigate life together in the states are currently playing out during Season 9 of 90 Day Fiance.
Bilal hasn’t earned himself a likable reputation among 90 Day Fiance viewers, with fans of the show accusing him of gaslighting Shaeeda, playing pranks on his fiancee, and being adamant about her signing a prenup.
Shaeeda, on the other hand, has earned the respect of 90 Day Fiance viewers, who admire her tenacity and patience. She’s also grown quite the following on social media, where she currently has 121,000 followers on Instagram, 43.3K followers on TikTok, and 1.2K followers on Facebook.
