Self-taught henna artist, painter, & neuroscientist
Born and raised in Bangladesh, I moved to the States in 2017 to study Neuroscience and Islamic Theology in college. I started doing henna as a way to connect with my ancestors and the cultural traditions that have shaped my life back in Bangladesh. Since then, I have done henna at 50+ events throughout the DMV area, including the Kennedy Center and Interfusion Festival.
To maintain the pure and natural integrity of henna, I make my own blend using fresh Rajasthani henna powder. My products are hypoallergenic, organic, and made-to-order.
In addition to pursuing a career as a henna artist, I recently completed my Master's in Integrative Neuroscience from Georgetown University. Currently, I am a full-time biologist at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where I specialize in robotics and stem cell differentiation.
