As a writer, my main purpose is to produce work that readers can connect to, a universal language that can be appreciated, challenged and cherished. My reflections come in many forms: blogs and articles, op-eds and critiques, as well as profile pieces and reviews. I am passionate about writing on design and technology, from methods and approaches, to mentorship and workplace structures. I wrote about the importance of diversity and inclusion and tips on getting started in UX.
In 2019, I was the head of content at UPFRONT, a startup dedicated to changing confidence by elevating and encouraging new voices on and off public stages. I curated and delivered a bi-weekly newsletter on power, confidence and public speaking and interviewed women about their confidence story.
In the past, I worked as a freelance journalist in Iran, Bosnia and Canada. Below are some of my published work:
- Women-led non-profit in Sarajevo that empowers women through knitting to re-engage in every life;
- Syria and Iran’s lingering links in Canada despite the expelling of diplomats;
- Islamophobia following the attacks in Canada in 2014.
