Hello, my name is Bashirat and I am a culture writer based in London. I write about movies, TV, books, fandom and have keen interests in pop culture and cultural criticism. Aside from pop culture, I enjoy writing about fashion, social issues, politics and global affairs - centring stories beyond Anglophone and Western narratives. In particular, I enjoy writing about fandom because I love talking to people and hearing about what they love. After all, everyone's a fan of something!
I also write features, first person narratives and I'm experienced in conducting interviews. My work has been featured in notable digital publications like Teen Vogue, Refinery29, Stylist, Polygon, HYPEBAE and much more. It's also been featured in print for the I Paper and other formats. I also work with leading consumer agencies to create reports and case studies on current trends in society and consumer behaviour.
My hobbies include indulging in foreign media, endlessly scrolling through K-pop or high fashion twitter and being a professional stan. Besides that, I'm either watching something, writing or studying for a class.
