Shahd is a social scientist, soon to graduate with a dual degree in Global Affairs and Criminology, Law, and Society. She spends most of her time trying to battle the chronic symptoms of mainstream society and is often that nagging socio-political voice in the corner of the room adding fuel to a heated debate. An expert at caffeine consumption and biting off more than she can chew, she can never say no to a cup of coffee or a good controversy. Shahd is also an avid bookworm, a home-bred feminist, and an aspiring writer and poet.
