Words by Aisha Down
Aisha has hiked in the mountains of nine countries. She works as a translator for the Cambodian poet Tararith Kho. Aisha is a Physics and English student at Harvard University, where she has made significant improvements in her Carl Sagan impression, if not in her comprehension of the proper use of em dashes or the Oxford comma. She reads Coetzee and David Foster Wallace, tells awful jokes, and frequently repeats herself when she gets excited. In her free time, Aisha enjoys eating breakfast and getting into arguments.
