Born in the United States to Egyptian parents, I write what I hear, what I know. ┬áCoptic, young, and female, I want to follow the words of God to Isaiah sometime when he went into the Temple and heard that message which he recorded for us. A graduate of Vanderbilt University’s College of Arts and Sciences, and soon to be a master’s student at the University of Chicago, I yearn to understand.
