WHO AM I// I am the founding editor and the behind-the-scenes “brain” of The MicroRead, an online quirky motivational blog, which catalogues the lessons I learn as I live.

The MicroRead has also transformed into a spot where I can publish my fictional work and feature Nubian-inspired poetry, with themes focusing on diaspora, loss and endless colour.

BACKGROUND//London-based, Egyptian Nubian. Nahla Idris is a freelance short fiction writer, a recent MSc Pharmacology graduate and Founder of The MicroRead (founded 2011). Frequently travelling and networking, Nahla began to appreciate that she has mastered the art of keeping motivated, staying organised and studying successfully.
