Malaika is an Artist and Photographer. She currently studies Fashion Promotion at Ravensbourne University in London. Her artwork hopes to capture raw beauty and truth, explore the unspoken regional stereotypes of South Asian Women faces, and start uncomfortable conversations. Growing up in Sharjah, while ethnically Indian but with influences of Congolese and Kenyan culture due to her parents upbringing in Africa she constantly felt unsure of her cultural identity growing up. She begins to embrace it though her work and hopes others begin to do the same.
