Aminah Mae Safi

Contributing Writer

Aminah Mae Safi is Texas transplant based in Los Angeles, where there is an unfortunate dearth of barbeque and queso. She wishes people would stop thinking of cooking as a chore and that feminism would stop being a dirty word. If she could start over again, she'd skipped school to become an action hero. When compiling a heist team to rob a Vegas casino, she would recruit Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Russell, Mathilda Wormwood, and Gertrude Bell.

She's probably read more young adult novels than you.

As of September 15, 2017, Aminah Mae's 34 articles like "Пистолет у вашего виска" have totaled 3.7M views and shares.
