Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. It’s been a while since my last post and quite a bit has happened since.

I finished my second year of uni with a high 2:1 (alhamdulillah x100), I spent over a hundred pounds buying books for my third year — and it wasn’t even all the ones on the list — and I turned 23 (yesterday). Oh, and I’ve updated the covers for my poetry books, LOST AND FOUND and REALITY.

This is the newest cover for LOST AND FOUND ❤


LOST AND FOUND is an exploration of love blurred with heartbreak, mental health and sexual abuse, female identity, dis/believing, and trying to break free from the chains of cultural toxicity. Ahmed uses haunting language to bring life to the gut-wrenching poems, reflecting on childhood trauma, that first-once-in-a-lifetime love and the broken heart that follows. It is a collection about how depression and anxiety can affect every day life and the role of a daughter in a South Asian family. It is a journey about pain and finding a semblance of hope in all that darkness.

let me know what you all think! I would love your support with my work and if you buy a copy of LOST AND FOUND, REALITY or even my novel, THE ART OF FAKING IT! ❤
