Welcome to my blog! My name is Umar and I reside in the suburbs of Washington D.C. I’m a college student originally (was born in the states but my parents immigrated here in the 90s) from Pakistan, and I am studying journalism. I am also really interested in photography, documentary and film, and humanitarian work.
Being of South Asian origin, I find that having tea is a very important time in the day. Whether it is in the house with family, or outside at a cafe with friends, tea is something that brings people together. And when they are together they are telling stories.
The goal in mind for this blog is to tell stories. Each cup of tea represents a story. And I want to reach a million cups of tea (or at least give it my best shot). The first few stories are going to be from my travels last year, however I will begin to include stories on what I have heard from other people, and other things I have seen in more recent times.
This is my first blog ever, so if you have any tips or ideas to help me make it better, please let me know! And if you like this blog, be sure to check me out on Instagram, my username is @justanotherbeardedsuperhero.
