Welcome!

My name is Laila (“Night”) Re (“Sun”) and I am a self-published author of two poetry books: Pieces to Peace and Soul Led . I was born in Kabul, Afghanistan on June 4, 1987. I escaped as a toddler with my family from impending civil war to Islamabad, Pakistan as refugees. From the age of five, I was raised in Toronto, Canada. My mother was a journalist in Afghanistan, I give her all credit for my passion growing up reading and writing. I earned three degrees at York University: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Education in Primary-Junior division, and a Masters of Education in Language, Culture and Teaching. My Major Research Paper was titled “Creative Action: Re-claiming Education and Freedom.” In 2016, I contributed a personal story to a anthology titled “The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth“, which shares the stories of 22 Muslim-Canadian women to reflect the diversity of our experiences.
