Salma Abdelsamie

I am currently finalising my BSc at the AUDE department of TU/e and hope to wrap it up soon to see where life takes me next!

When I am not in Eindhoven, I’m in the heart of Cairo, the city that truly never sleeps.

My architecture and design identity lays deep within the search for sustainable and green alternatives to any and everything. With fashion being a huge essence of my being and jewellery playing a vital role in my cultural expression, I am working on my start-up brand that uses recycled precious metals and beads for handmade (by yours truly) jewellery.

I am always hoping and working to find new ways of integrating my architectural training and passion for writing into whatever I do. I have been through quite an extensive array of experiences ranging from the 25th of January political revolution and the Arab Spring to simply taking my first hike up to the Moiry Glacier at the Swiss Alps last summer; so, I love to think that writing gives me a personal and professional outlet to share and make sense of my life and the lives of others around me. From writing my first poetry book at the age of 15 to joining the Cursor family just last year, I am grateful for the opportunities writing has offered me and hope to continue doing it as long as I may.
