On Sarajevo / by Meera Al Sayegh

Meera Al Sayegh is a Lebanese-Emirati bedouin living in the Lower East Side. Once a resident of the desert island of Abu Dhabi, she is now happily on the island of Manhattan.  A student of Comparative Literature and the Spanish language, she is wide-eyed-and-eared for drum beats, poetry, and the African diaspora. Sometimes, she reads about gender theory and thinks in Arabic, the noise of her ancestors.
