Nadia Hasan is twenty-two years old and currently lives in Detroit, MI. Right now, she spends her time being a college student who's working toward a degree in English. She's also learning languages. She's near-fluent in Spanish, but would like to be fluent in as many as three different languages besides English. She was born with cerebral palsy, but likes to think that is the least important aspect of her life. Nadia loves spending time with friends and family, has a never-ending craving for Mexican food and enjoys going to rock concerts. Writing has always been a passion for her and getting published has always been a dream. When asked what's most important to her about her writing, she says, "I want to write things that matter, things that speak to people and make them listen. I hope that my writing can inspire others and maybe help save a life or two." What else does she have to say about herself? "I don't really follow trends, or make much sense, and I'm usually off doing my own thing. All in all, I'm a little weird but people still tend to like me." You can usually find Nadia working on her blog at: http://writergurl-ink.blogspot.com/ Her short story, "The Saint and the Sinner" has been published in "Michigan Ave. Creative Arts Journal", as well as "The Mirror News" newspaper.
