About Tahani Al-Salem

Tahani Al-Salem is a hippy, hipster, liberal, artsy, independent, whirlwind of a girl, or at least that’s how her mother describes her. She is happiest at home on her couch with a good book and a cup of tea, out gallivanting through the city, or having conversations she’ll never forget with strangers who just happen to cross her path. She is studying Social Work at the University of Washington, and is notorious for putting pen to paper and letting her thoughts wander when she should be paying attention in class.

Book Review: Notes From A Blue Bike

Book Review: Notes From A Blue Bike

  I recently read this book, and I keep going back to it. I always know a book has been good when I can’t stop thinking about what it it stirred in me, and what I hope to do about it. I think it’s funny, because I tend to feel like the target audience for(…)
