Speaking about her debut book, she said, “I’ve learned that accepting who you are, with all your quirks and uniqueness, is the most empowering journey one can embark on. We live in a world that needs diversity, and every individual’s story is a piece of that beautiful mosaic. Stories of fierce women are not just the need of the hour; they are the timeless tales that inspire generations, reminding us that strength and resilience know no boundaries. We need these stories to remind ourselves that we, too, can be the heroes of our own lives. This novel is deeply personal and it puts out there the rawest, most unfiltered version of me.”
From what we hear, Huma Qureshi’s ‘Zeba – An Accident Superhero’ is expected to be a story of heroism, transformation, and the indomitable human spirit in the face of adversity.
