I have been writing poetry since I was 12 years old and following that, was also making art. I am currently doing a Masters’ programme in Art Therapy in Singapore. I was the Past President of Migrant Voice, an arts group aimed at celebrating the artistic talents of migrant workers in Singapore. I am currently working with male migrant workers in Singapore who have employment issues, most of whom are from Bangladesh for my dissertation.

I am not Palestinian. My only link to Palestine is reading about the atrocities and suffering of its people, and especially its children. Nevertheless, I feel for the people of Palestine and often find myself worrying about the little girls living in Gaza, spending their childhood under the threat of bombs. I also worry that they might not have friends or family to guide, teach and help them grow.
My preoccupation with these young girls is largely due to my own childhood spent in isolation and solitude; my parents were divorcing and I had nobody to count on. I had questions to ask, but there was nobody to answer them. I was angry, but there was nobody to notice. Then I discovered poetry and art. I wish the heroines in my poems, surrounded and trapped by war, would learn to embrace art as their close friend.
