Welcome to Issue 8, featuring Muniba Mazari.
In each Stories Issue, we collect stories from women around the world. These stories are authentic, raw, and unapologetic. They are emotional. They are stories not often told. We hope their stories of strength will spark necessary conversations about child marriage and, most importantly, change these practices for the betterment of women everywhere.
Muniba Mazari decided to find her inner strength by using art as a tool after a car accident which left her paralysed, nine years ago. A dreamer, Ms Mazari chose art as a way to break free from the fetters of her physical disability and transcend into the vibrant world of her dreams. Her art is a glimpse into her aspirations in life, her fears and her never fading hope. It is a depiction of memories that may have once haunted her but have now transformed into opportunities, passion and resilience. Source
