Aaraf Afzal

Author Archive: Aaraf Afzal

Aaraf Afzal is many things, but he is not (yet) a Keyblade Master. He continues to work towards this goal, among others, at Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences where he seems to be majoring in Procrastination. An avid subscriber to the belief that all forms of media have their own sense of artistic beauty, he is particularly invested in writing fiction and recently released his first novel "Re: Revolution" in Bangladesh. Alongside his pursuits at Culture Shock, he's currently at work writing an online series. Next stop: going global!

When he is not writing stories, he can be found tucked away under a blanket reading either (A) fantasy novels, (B) TV Tropes, (C) comic books, or, of course, (D) Culture Shock! Giggity.
