Amna (they/them) is a student, organizer, + writer based in Atlanta.  When they’re not running frantically late to everything in life they enjoy spending an unnecessary amount of money on plants, thrifting, and food in the name of self-care. Their favorite kind of day is one where it’s chilly & windy, but the sun is still shining really hard. They love fighting with white people on the internet & mindlessly scrolling through Instagram. They dream of a world where everything in their wardrobe is cobalt blue & all people are free, seen, + loved.
