Born in North London to Iranian parents, Anahit’s life has always been filled with a diverse mixture of cultures and places. She studied languages and literature at the University of Oxford and the University of St Andrews, and has interned in French museums, taught in Germany and travelled throughout Europe, China and the Middle East, avidly exploring the world through books and her own travels. An enthusiastic writer, Anahit runs her own blog and worked at the university newspaper before joining The Culture Trip. When not writing, she can be found preparing for her PhD on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The History of Middle-earth, reading in cosy cafés, or obsessively watching Marvel films.
