From small town New Hampshire to the Czech Republic (or are we having to call it Czechia now?) to Egypt, this writer finds home in the sounds of pen on paper and the clinking of keys.
My name is Jillian Pikora. I am a graduate of North Carolina State University, where I studied the Middle East, Global Perspectives, and Political Science. After working on several political campaigns in a variety of locales, and volunteering extensively with the Girl Scouts as a lifelong member; I brought my enthusiasm for helping others and organizing events to several Muslim non-profits.
I embrace my Muslim community by attending a variety of Masjids where I have helped others begin Girl Scout Troops for their daughters and volunteered teaching young children beginning Arabic.
Currently, I am working full-time as a writer. I’ve written and contributed to numerous websites and blogs, some of this work can be viewed here.
I have been writing in journals since I was seven years old. I write to record details, make observations, journal my daily life, write songs and poems, and short story ideas, and later reflect on these passages. I am so privileged that I now have opportunities to share my writings with an audience. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoyed writing it.
