A twenty-something year old working in the field of International Relations, living in London with my husband Karim and our cat, Coco, who was given to us as a means of getting rid of a litter of unwanted kittens wedding present.

I was born and brought up in London, UK, except for the year that I spent experiencing compound-life in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where my dad was posted.

I have a habit of twirling a strand of hair around my index finger while in deep thought, my favourite time of the year is the few days running up to my birthday (yes, I’m self absorbed), I carry a stash of salt packets in my handbag (I’m a lover of salt) and you can win my heart if you buy me a bunch of grapes (true story – I married the guy who bought me a bunch when I was starving but refused to eat carbs!).
