Aia Hawari


Aia Hawari is a Muslim American author, poet, editor, and community servant-leader from Southern California with a degree in Literature and Writing from UC San Diego. Her work has been published in UC San Diego’s Common Ground, Alchemy-A Journal of Translation at UC San Diego, and UC Berkeley’s Threads (formerly known as Al-Bayan Magazine).
