Dilraz Kunnummal is the author of the much-loved children’s book, ‘See You Soon’. The role she’s proudest of is being mama to her cheeky little boy, and her journey as a parent is where she draw inspiration from for most of her writing.
She’s a trained journalist with experience across media platforms including print, television and radio. She has covered the Arab Spring for a daily newspaper, and has interviewed multiple Bollywood celebrities during her radio days.
Having been an expatriate throughout her life, she aims to tell stories which are multicultural and can connect to a global audience. Over the last decade, she has contributed to a number of successful anthology books including ‘My Beautiful Bahrain’, published by Robin Baratt and ‘Raising the Global Mindset’ curated by Aditi Wardhan Singh, of Raising World Children.
She currently lives in Doha, Qatar with her four year old boy, Ayan and her husband, Sujid. A fun anecdote she likes to share is that she was born and raised in Bahrain, her husband was born and raised in Dubai and now they are raising their little one in Doha, thus making them a fully ‘Gulfie’ family, who are still Indian. She is an advocate for positive conscious parenting, and is absolutely committed to raising a global citizen.
When she is not busy with work or parenting related projects, you will find her on stage – as a speaker, performer or choreographer! Or busy in some corner with her author hat on. She is always looking for exciting projects and prospects that she can add to her repertoire. She enjoys tasks which push and challenge her. Her motto is to live each day to its fullest; to grab every opportunity, and give it her best shot.
