I’m Nazish Dholakia, a recent Northwestern graduate with a passion for writing that often morphs into a compulsion. This blog chronicles my own revelations during time spent in East and southern Africa, where I’ve written stories on social justice and humanitarian issues. I am a couch-potato-multitasker, a fan of anything written by Jhumpa Lahiri, a television junkie (more specifically, a reality TV show junkie), and a Texan at heart.
