Tamara Haque is a strategist by day and writer by night. Bangladeshi by birth and with roots in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Australia, Tamara loved the multi-culturalism in her upbringing and worldview. Tired of orientalism and the erasure of Muslim history, Tamara decided to write Stories of 20 Mighty Muslim heroes for children. She also writes on decolonising our minds. When Tamara is not working or writing, she is reading, cooking, walking, travelling, annoying her husband or petting adorable doggos.
Tamara Haque is a Strategist by day and writer by night. Bangladeshi by birth and with roots in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Australia, Tamara loved the multi-culturalism in her upbringing and worldview.

Thus started her journey in decolonising history.
