About Me
By The Khan Owl   

Kanza KhanThough I was born in Karachi, Pakistan, people would never think I was. I have an American accent, speak Urdu like a preschooler, and can’t stand kameez shalwar and especially the infamous dupatta.

My entire life, I’ve been around American people, and been exposed to the “American lifestyle”. I’ve been told about the “Pakistani lifestyle” but in all honesty, I have no idea what that is. And quite frankly, I’m not too fond of the “desi mentality”.

So anyways, this will be a diary of my day-to-day life in an American University where I am studying International Relations and Psychology with a minor in Philosophy and Law; all to become an International Lawyer (definitely not a typical desi career).

I know that many of you are wondering what does an American desi girl go through in an American University, and let me just tell you that we go through A LOT. We have to decide not just between what’s right and what’s wrong, but also what’s socially acceptable in the desi society as well as the American society.

Trying to fit in has never been this hard, but it’s a journey and I hope to give everyone an insight on what we are exposed to, what we are thinking and what we do about it.
