I’m Shamiha! I have been writing on Medium since December 2022!
Here are six things about me:
☑️ I’m a 10x Top Writer 🏆 across six categories: Advice, Diversity, Inspiration, Ideas, Health, Mental Health, Life Lessons, Parenting, Psychology, and This Happened To Me.
✔ I was late diagnosed with Autism and ADHD at 27. I also have a bunch of other chronic illnesses that have taught me life’s cruel and beautiful lessons.
✔ I’ve been obsessed with reading and writing since I was 4. I first started writing short stories on high school musical fan fiction! (Cringe, but legendary?)
✔ I have a degree in Psychology and a Master's in Social Work to write about neurodiversity, mental health, and abuse from an educated and professional perspective.
✔ I currently work in Transport and Environmental Policy, but have worked in Government Policy, Homelessness, and Health.
✔ I live in the UK with my husband, daughter, and Siberian cat 🐱
