What’s my calling?
I begged the stars
Turning up every corner of my life in search of my truth
The answer came back to me
In the form of
a simple statement:
“You must keep writing.”
My name is Aleenah, and I am an aspiring UX writer.
More than that, I am a resilient storyteller who believes that inclusion, vulnerability, and a little bit of humor are the ingredients to craft compelling narratives. I’ve done this through my coursework as a student in the UW Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering and work as a reporter focusing on stories related to higher education and diversity, writing tutor, and content developer intern at Microsoft.
Regardless of what story I tell, I intend to make it a good one. Read on to see some of the things I've worked on!
