Zainab Mabizari. Born and raised in Houston, Texas. The child of immigrants, the grandchild of revolutionary warriors, identifying as Muslim, Algerian, American. Lover of conversations over coffee and copious amounts of laughter. Fourth year medical student at Baylor College of Medicine, graduate of the Master’s of Science in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University. Passionate about health policies, women empowerment, the care of the underserved and underrepresented, global health, social justice and health activism, and medical humanities.
I am a writer and poet; storytelling is the method through which I mobilize, diversify representation, and advocate. I focus on weaving humanity with medicine and sharing experiences unique to my intersectional identities.
This space is a collection of my thoughts and work. I appreciate you for being here.
