Dr Farah Adeeb is an expatriate from Lahore. She studied her PhD at the University of Auckland before taking on a position with the Environment Protection Authority in South Australia. She is now a senior air quality manager with the equivalent organisation in Western Australia. She is also the branch president for Clean Air Society for Australia and New Zealand.
Farah is also a freelance writer and these poems are therefore reflective of the thoughts and feelings of many within the immigrant population within Australia.
