My name is Mahin and I’m a writer. My writing has appeared in HuffPost as a contributor, Narratively, and Amaliah where my article was the most read of 2017. In spring 2019, my essay will be published in the anthology Halal If You Hear Me from Haymarket Books. I started my career in tech and work in digital entertainment and I’d like to note, my opinions are my own and not the views of my employer. On weekends you can find me thinking about how I wish I liked to wake up early, hiking and realizing it’s really walking I’m doing here, and watching YouTube cooking videos, which I find so relaxing. I’d love to connect! Find me on Twitter @mahinsays and sign up for my newsletter here.
