Hi, welcome to my site! I am a South Asian and Muslim American writer from Maryland and Washington, D.C. I am a graduate of The George Washington University and Summer Institute at the University of Iowa International Writing Program. My work has received awards from the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition and has appeared in Potato Soup Journal, 50 Word Stories, Writing in a Woman’s Voice, Asians in America, and Constellate Literary Journal, among others. Passionate in the humanities, I enjoy working on projects that focus on narrative storytelling and uplift diverse, traditionally marginalized voices. I currently work at EMILY'S List and previously worked at National Geographic Books, Smithsonian Books, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. When I'm not working or writing, I'm trying new recipes and watching crime dramas.
