A’ssia Rai

A’ssia Rai

My name is A’ssia Rai. I am seventeen years old and I am an artist. I am a non-binary Muslim individual and I find myself writing poetry, drawing, painting, taking photos, and singing. I was born in New York City and currently reside in Housatonic, Massachusetts. I grew up in Lahore, Cape Town, and London. I am half Pakistani and half Indian. I am a sophomore at Bard College at Simon’s Rock. I helped create a music collective named Drab Ave. We have been publishing music on a couple of platforms, as well as performing on our campus. I have attended several ICP workshops since 9th grade. I also attended the International Writing Program at Iowa University. The session was called Between the Lines.
