Hello! My name is Tahira Karim.
It really is very nice to meet you :)
I am an illustrator, an author and a teacher.
I absolutely love the ocean, pictures and learning.
Born in Canada with mixed Indian and African heritage, I have always been drawn to history and stories. One of my dreams was to create children's books that could help children by inspiring their confidence, building their life skills and giving them the autonomy they deserve. Now I have begun this journey.
I create these books from my ideas, my background and through using my skills in animation, design, writing and teaching.
I create these books to address the issues close to my heart ; human rights, equality of girls in the world, freedom, and the environment.
It is my dream to work with people, publishers and companies who have a vested interest in education, rights and green-initiatives for building towards healthy and strong communities with bright futures.
