To start a conversation with me, ask me: about my favorite books (To Kill a Mockingbird and the Harry Potter series top my list) or what I am currently binge watching on Netflix.

Something interesting most people don't know about me: My paternal grandparents are from Pakistan, so I grew up in a multicultural family. My dad cooking Pakistani meals growing up is what began my love of eating and experiencing other cultures through food.

Favorite country I've traveled to and why: I spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, giving it a special place in my heart. There are three main reasons why I loved it so much: pizza, pasta, and gelato. Like I mentioned, I really love food.
