Sa’iyda Shabazz is a writer who lives in Los Angeles with her partner Beth Ryne, son and 3 pets. When she has time you can find her in the kitchen, listening to music, or reading a book. For most of her childhood and adolescence, she was studying to be an actor, but after graduating from Emerson College, she decided that she could turn her writing hobby into a career. She spent five years writing for a popular parenting and lifestyle site where her work met at the intersections of parenthood, race, sexuality and class. Over the years she has also written entertainment pieces for various outlets where she offered critiques and honed her interview skills. Now she is parlaying her love of organization into being the associate producer for FEELING SEEN.
