When Duriba Khan was thirteen years old she experienced critical life changes, but found little to no one to relate to through popular culture, literature, or television. As a result, she founded The Urban Rani, which translates to "Urban Queen," a symbolic ode to her hyphenated identity as an Indian/Pakistani-American. This a blog with the purpose of providing her with a creative outlet to chronicle her life, subtly pass unsolicited advice, share things she loves, and cultivate lessons from her experiences to share to those who are willing to listen.
This blog is her story: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
"Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I’ll be mad." - Jalaluddin Rumi
