With our tremendous zeal and love for books, we have brought you this conversation with Nuzhat Jahan, the author of Lahara; We Are One. Hailing from Fiji, Nuzhat is a student of Law, Philosophy and Sharia Law.
She became a qualified coach in 2015 and since then she is training millennial clients internationally. Lahara, which is her first book, is inspired by the people she met in London throughout her twenties as well as her experiences of high suicide rates in London, loneliness, a dating culture with little meaning and travelling through the dark tunnels of London’s underground system.
Here’s to our conversation with Nuzhat whilst keeping her book Lahara; We Are One in context…
