Coming from the verdant hills of Islamabad but living in Dubai, Shizah is currently a high school senior in love with the art of storytelling. She believes in wielding dialogue to level the playing field for the less heard and for shaping our own narratives out of those prescribed to us. When she's not busy concocting a mélange of mangoes and spices in her poetry, she can be found with her nose buried deep inside a book - of which the genre tends to fluctuate. And when it isn't poems or books, you can spot her diving into fiery debates with friends and strangers alike, binge-watching The Daily Show (the Jon Stewart version!) or indulging on lots of honey cake.
