Sabhanaz Rashid Diya – petnamed Picklette through her ‘performance literature’ affiliations with Brine Pickles at The British Council – is a mass of hyperness. She is currently enrolled in first semester at Independent University, Bangladesh and plans to major in Media & Communication eventually.

Many of the interviews and writings that will be available at this blog will be published at Rising Stars (The Daily Star) on Thursdays over the next 4 weeks.
