Young, powerful female voices from any part of the world are a cause for celebration, especially if they’re from Pakistan. Poet, Youtuber and Instagammer, 20-year old Noor Unnahar’s collection of poetry and musings, Yesterday I Was The Moon, is a fresh voice that needs to be heard and understood. Unnahar tries to make sense of collapsing and rebuilding oneself on the treacherous path from teenager to adult in modern society. Tinged with the heartbreak of a broken home and the complexity of a rich cultural background, her book stands out from the Insta-poetry crowd as a collection worth keeping.
