HEY. I’m Hinna Aamani (Hih-na. Am-ar-ni), a nearly 20-year-old girl from the not so small town of Reading (yeah the place with the festival), and I’m an extremely enthusiastic, budding journalist!
Why am I so enthusiastic about this? Well, funnily enough it is because reading isn’t seen as popular anymore. Newspaper sales are decreasing, people actually watch film adaptations before they read the book, and don’t even get me started on what we now call ‘listicles’.
I want writing to mean something again. And as a minority, through race, religion and gender, and an activist of many things, my goal is to rejuvenate the power of the pen (or the keyboard), and whether it be for promoting peace, or proving that Jurassic Park is the best movie ever made, I want to make some sort of a difference.
Even when I’m not writing, I am making little video documentaries on topics I find important and have a passion for.
What am I passionate about? Everything really. From fashion to film, to social issues, and considering the fact that we are stuck in Tory Britain and have to go back to blue passports (it’s not even a nice blue), I have a deep interest in politics.
So… if you’re the type to doze off during Question Time (or if you don’t even know what that is) there should still be plenty for you to read, from makeup reviews to current affairs, or even why I think George Harrison was the best Beatle.
