^.^ writer, playwright, community-focused theatermaker ^.^
hello, i'm mehrnaz !
(it's two syllables. c'mon, sound it out.)
i've recently graduated from new york university's tisch school of the arts. i received my bachelor of fine arts in dramatic writing with a concentration in playwriting. I also minored in middle eastern and islamic studies.
i'm currently *gag* finding myself as an artist and following my creativity wherever it may lead me. i'm exploring my practice on my own terms, and create as an act of worship to everything that has brought me here.
i write for my younger self. for her to feel less alone, for her to feel like she’s not crazy for dreaming big. for her to have hope that things will get better. for her to believe in herself and something greater than herself. for her to feel like she belongs. for her, that ostracized iranian girl with a mustache, to be heard.
i sincerely would love to chat. xoxoxo !
