When people ask me to say something about myself, my go-to response is “I grew up in Morocco” and in many ways, this is what defines me. Content writer by day, fiction writer by night, I write literary fiction with a propensity for drama, magical realism and from time to time, science fiction.
Advocate of multiculturalism and believer in the power of creative writing to bring even the most opposite poles that little bit closer, I am obsessed with storytelling in any way, shape, or form.
After a year and half stint in Paris and “fair Verona”, I was scheduled to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing in New York starting this fall. Shockingly, despite getting into a great program, my student visa was rejected. *wipes tears and gets back up.*
I am now back in London and I intend to make this next year count.
