Culturally disorganized Amirah Tajdin confesses to having
an unhealthy love for anything remotely related to art, film, music or photography. Fuelled by a passion for being creative, Amirah's artistic endeavors range from short films to dj-ing and wall murals to sculptures. She graduated from Rhodes University with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Photography) in South Africa. Amirah was born and brought up in Nairobi, spent her teenage years in Dubai and considers her ongoing romance with crazy cities and her mixed lineage as influences for most of her films, photography and drawings, as well as her choice to consider everywhere and nowhere home.
