Farah grew up in a big, hot, congested city in Pakistan and loved every moment of it – mostly because she had pet goats and a bizarre appreciation for scorching temperatures. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Duke University, where she became interested in maternal fetal medicine and addicted to sweet tea. Currently, she is a first year medical student at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where she spends most of her time inhabiting windowless study rooms. She has a passion for food and writing, although most of her meals are bought from the freezer aisle and most of her writing is associated with PowerPoint slides.
