Bula, I’m Shafiya Mū! It’s nice to meet you.
I’m an Indian-Fijian, Muslim-Buddhist, Queer, Trans Nonbinary, neurodivergent human that absolutely adores books of all sorts, especially #OwnVoices Asian literature.
I created The Djinn Reader to be a semi-professional portfolio of my writings for submission to M.A. and M.F.A. programmes that I’ll be applying to in the coming year or so. Additionally, I wanted a fun space dedicated entirely to my journey with experiencing diversity in fiction, particularly works that mean a lot to me and my identity as a Queer, Asian human.
In addition to The Djinn Reader, I have a main blogging space where I discuss non-diverse books and comics, anime and manga, video games, and mental health and self-care practises, called BiblioNyan. That space is updated twice a day approximately 5 to 6 days out of the week.
Aside from being a student and a voracious bibliophile, I also love kitty-cats, milo and chai, and video games.
