for less than half a latte (or more if you're so inclined!) at your favorite local coffee shop you'll be supporting me so i can continue writing, creating, educating and sharing. 




per month


i'm anum (she, her, hers):  a muslima, writer, reader, wanderer, radical feminist, advocate of social justice, product of pakistani diaspora, partner, cat mama and more. i'm in my final year of medical school, after completing my masters in public health last year, and will be pursuing a career in psychiatry after graduation. 

i find power and healing in sharing and have been speaking openly about the struggles i've faced in my career, with my mental health, as a muslim woman of color and more on my instagram and blog for almost five years now. 

here on patreon i write about two pieces per month. topics range from:
  • reflections on my journey through medicine, being muslim and desi in these times, living with chronic illnesses, lessons learned from therapy, etc. 
  • poetry
  • essays from my time in graduate school
  • tips on writing, travel, photography, sustainable style, blogging
  • early access to: lectures, workshops, wellness groups, etc.
  • and so much more!  

women, particularly women of color, are often expected to do emotional and intellectual labor at only a cost to them and while this work is a labor of love, it is labor nonetheless. unfortunately, in this capitalist world we live in financial support is often the most helpful. funds raised will be used to foster my wellness and to create spaces to do this restorative work with you all offline.
