I was born and raised in Pakistan. Growing up in a conservative Muslim, South-Asian country was terrifying and self-acceptance was an uphill journey. When I moved to Malaysia for university, I found love and support from friends and the local LGBTQI community that changed my life forever.

My summer internship at Trans Lifeline showed me the power that peer support and community can have in turning a trans person’s life around.

I’m a high school therapist, grad student, and volunteer researcher on the Microgrants team. When you apply for a grant, we’ll help you gather everything you’ll need, walk you through the legal process, and get you the money to pay for it.

In addition, our team collects and shares information on ID changes for every county in the U.S. I call court houses all over the country, but mostly I deep-dive internet research at 1 a.m. on a Tuesday—my favorite hour of free time!

If you like tracking down facts, we’d love to have you on board.
