About Amy

Hello, everyone! This is Amy and welcome to my personal blog. I was raised in rural Oregon, went to New York for college, went to the Midwest for grad school, and in between all of that lived and studied in Jordan, Morocco, Egypt, and Turkey.

aminsophiamehrI already have another blog, Khetaba, which is dedicated to my academic and professional interests in Middle Eastern Studies, but I wanted to give myself another space to write about some fluffier content or serious content that doesn’t fit into my other blog’s niche.

I am happily engaged to Amin Sophiamehr, who is the light of my life. We love to play pool, cook delicious Persian food, have deep discussions about politics and philosophy, and take long evening walks together.
