ABOUT RUKHSANNA GUIDROZ
Rukhsanna Guidroz was born in Manchester, England. With a Persian-Indian father and a Chinese mother, Rukhsanna was always drawn to traveling to far away places. After attending college in Europe, she left for the steamy shores of Hong Kong. There, she worked as a reporter for the Hong Kong Standard daily newspaper, and later as a producer of the current affairs show “Hong Kong Today” for RTHK’s Radio 3. She also wrote features for in-flight magazines for China Airlines, Qantas, and Emirates. A windsurfing trip to the Hawaiian Islands changed the course of Rukhsanna’s life. Swept away by the sheer beauty, relaxed lifestyle, and warm climate of the islands, she decided to make Maui her home. After becoming a mother, Rukhsanna began her teaching career. She particularly enjoys encouraging her students, kindergarteners or high schoolers, to write from a place deep within themselves where creativity has no limits.
Writing helps me see the world from a different place. It’s an heart-opening, courageous action and I’ve decided, whether people like my work or not, I absolutely have to do it.
