Oh, hello there! My name’s Saira and I’m a 20 year old, Muslim ,Medical Engineering student in South Wales. I’m trying to navigate getting through life with depression and I’m on anti-depressants to help me manage and I’m alright with that! I run a YouTube channel as well as this blog, I love to read and if I don’t have a book in hand then I will definitely have an embroidery piece that I’m working on.
Whilst most people have a sweet tooth, I definitely have more of a sour one. I’m obsessed! I have a massive soft spot for sloths, bees and flamingos and would happily own anything that has those animals printed on them. I love a good rom-com but nothing will beat the Disney films that I’ve grown up on. Shawn Mendes has captured my heart and have I told you guys how excited I am now that the Jonas Brothers are back together?
I started blogging back in 2014 and mainly blogged about books but A Cup of Sai wasn’t born until 2016 when, in the middle of my A Levels, I decided that I needed a place that would reflect all the changes and curveballs life was, and still is, throwing at me. This blog is a safe space for me and anyone who reads it and that’s the way that I always want it to be. There’s so much that goes on in my head and I use my blog as a space for all of that, so I hope you enjoy x
