Samira Ahmed

Samira Ahmed

Samira Ahmed was born in Bombay, India and grew up in a small Illinois town in a house that smelled like fried onions, cardamom, and potpourri.

She received her BA and MAT from the University of Chicago and went on to teach high school English in both the suburbs of Chicago and the New York City Public Schools. After she left the classroom, she worked in education non-profits, helping to create more than seventy small high schools in New York City and fought to secure billions of dollars in public school funding throughout New York State. Samira is the New York Times bestselling author of Love, Hate & Other Filters and the forthcoming Internment, and Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know.
