Sumaiya Ahmed is a lifestyle freelance writer and author, aiming to break down the boundaries of cultural stigma and shame attached to mental health and sexuality within the South Asian culture and bring marginalised topics to light.
She specialises in sex and relationships, mental health, and PCOS. She has amassed a collaboration with BBC Asian Network’s Group Chat, speaking about Islamophobia, as well as HIV testing and the lack of conversation surrounding sex from the South Asian community. Sumaiya has written in various publications, including Metro, The Sun, The Curiosity Club, The Breakdown, and more.
She has previously written about sex in relation to both culture and religion, the questioning of faith, interracial relationships and the need for awareness on PCOS, amongst many other vital topics.
Sumaiya is a born and raised London gal, obsessed with Modern Family (seriously, she watched it at least 11 times last year, and is watching it again), cats and chocolate. She’s dabbled in poetry, short stories, and right now, is in the midst of writing the second installment of the Second Chance Love series.
Sumaiya is always available for collaborations, commissions, press releases and reviews. If you want to chat about books, shows, chocolate, or anything else, don’t hesitate in reaching out.
