"In Being in Your Body, author Fariha Róisín prompts you to explore a new language for thinking about your physical self. Addressing concepts like "compare and despair" and the false connection between thinness and happiness, this journal walks you through the process of cultivating confidence in yourself, while advocating for a broader definition of beauty for all."

She is the author of the poetry collection How To Cure A Ghost (2019), as well as the novel Like A Bird (2020). Her upcoming work is a book of non-fiction entitled, Who Is Wellness For?
