Biography

Daughter to Pakistani immigrants, Zehra was born outside of Chicago and grew up in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Zehra is also a stage actress, having written a one-woman musical-comedy show called "Headscarf and the Angry Bitch", which she toured around the world, as a means of dispelling stereotypes and post-9/11 fear and wariness of Muslims with humor.

She is also fluent in Japanase, which she studied at Wellesley College and Stanford's Kyoto Japan Center. She also worked in Japanese theater, and eventually translated and staged one musical at the Takarazuka Revue, an all-female musical theater, as her senior honors thesis. She also did a traditional Japanese comedy training and performance program in Kyoto.

Zehra also speaks French and Hindi and Urdu.[4]
