If you’re curious about Shahnaz’s/my writer side, you’re in the right place. It has taken me a while to dive back into the craft but over the past few years I have at long last been flexing that muscle again and it feels great!

My main platforms are:

  1. This blog
  2. Medium, under the username @sradjy
  3. Startup Grind¬†(my fave article is “5 business lessons from Game of Thrones“)

That said, I do regularly submit pieces to third parties and sometimes they even get published! (Can you hear the crowd cheering too, or is that just me?) Here’s a sample of some of my favorite articles:

Thought Catalogue

Holstee’s Mindful Matter Blog¬†


I also juggle side projects (don’t all writers?) so if you’re interested, ask me about NaNoWriMo or that children’s story I might have tucked into a back pocket.

Last but certainly not least, since December 2017 I work part-time for Pure Portugal, a wonderful community-based website that advertises rural properties for sale in Portugal. It has a blog, and I frequently contribute – both in English and French.
