Amanda Leigh Lichtenstein

Originally from Chicago, IL, Amanda currently lives in Stone Town, Zanzibar, where she works as the Resident Director of a Swahili Overseas Flagship Program at the State University of Zanzibar. When she's not obsessing over kanga textiles or Kiswahili proverbs, she's experimenting in the kitchen or traveling along the Swahili coast. Her writing most recently appears in Mambo Magazine and Contrary Magazine.
