Hello, I’m Zahra, a  25 year old self-proclaimed mipster! (at the disco).

I’m a History graduate from King’s College London and I have a background in writing, research, media and communications, campaigning and activism.

Having blogged & video-blogged as a teenager, I want to get back into blogging and primarily use this platform to share my poetry. Since 2014, I have been writing and sharing my spoken word poetry across universities in London. My writing focuses on themes such as mental health, friendship, identity, faith and culture.

I hope you enjoy my writing! If you do, please leave a comment and feel free to engage with me directly 🙂

You can find more of my poetry over on my instagram page:


[For those of you who are interested, my username refers to the term ‘mipster’ commonly used to describe Muslim hipsters. The ‘at the disco’ refers to my favourite band since I was a teenager, Panic! at the disco.]
