Immigration is the core (and the bane) of my existence. I was born & raised in Malaysia of Bangladeshi parents, but didn’t get Malaysian citizenship until my 26th birthday. I’ve also lived in Brisbane, Australia and the San Francisco Bay Area, USA and am currently based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve also been traveling my whole life – most of it on a Bangladeshi passport that required all the most difficult visas ever.
I’m a writer, performance artist, producer, and activist. Most of my work has to do with liminality and being “in-between”. My current main project is Queer Lady Magician, an autobiographical magic & storytelling show where I revisit my childhood love of magic with a social justice lens and a strong case of impostor syndrome.
