Azza Malik is a Sudanese writer who was raised in the tight-knit community of Khartoum, where the enigmatic dance of politics, legacy, and family that played out behind closed doors became the seed from which her ideas emerged. Malik is obsessed with dissecting the broader geopolitical frameworks to bridge the gap between East and West.
