Simran Kaur Takhi

Simran is an aspiring psychologist and writer based in the West Midlands. She has a huge interest in BAME voices and the championing of independent publishing. In her spare time, she loves exploring and writing about the experience of the South Asian diaspora in Britain. The intersections of race, nationality and culture is something that Simran would love to write a thesis about in the future. As a massive Jeff Buckley fan, she can often be found teary-eyed, listening to his whole discography on repeat.
