Shaima Adin

American Refugee and Immigrant, Born in Afghanistan, Lived in Pakistan

Afghani-born Shaima Adin came to the United States as a sixteen-year-old immigrant after spending years as a refugee in Pakistan. She currently works in an engineering management position at a Safety and Quality testing laboratory. Shaima has been married for seven years to Naseer, a fellow immigrant who is interviewed in the book, and together they have a one-year-old daughter, Hadiya. Both Shaima and Naseer are first-generation refugees who made the American dream a reality for themselves. They both love to travel, listen to music, or just go on long drives.

Shaima discovered her passion for writing when she came to the US and began attending school. She found a new platform where her thoughts and imagination were not confined to any cultural, religious, or political structure. She soon realized that academia gave her the means to set her writing spirit free. For years, Shaima wrote solely for school or work, but her thirst to write for a larger audience always remained unquenched.

In light of the recent growing debate about immigrants and refugees around the world, Shaima has joined forces with Chaithanya to put forth stories of immigrants from a spectrum of different backgrounds who all call America home. Her purpose in doing so is to paint a different picture of immigrants and refugees by displaying their sides of the story and the struggles of starting from nothing.
