About Rayed

A business graduate with experience in strategic consulting and advertising, Rayed is passionate about content creation and storytelling. He has been trying to turn writing into a side hustle from a hobby since 2009.

Instead of going for the Philip Kotler Koolaid, Rayed committed a cardinal error when he drank the Elon Musk and Steve Jobs flavors instead. Since then, his life has never been the same.

Warda Binte Humayun

About Warda

Warda is a business school junior. She spends her time wondering how she will ever finish all the great books of this world because like Frank Zappa said ‘too many books, too little time’, and worrying about the fate of motherland.

She also worships Ritwik Ghatak and Satyajit Ray, and enjoys sports blogging with Rabindrasangeet playing in the background. If she had to pick one subject to fangirl over, that would be Real Madrid.

She is also looking for classical history memes recommendations.
