Mohammed Mohaiminul Haque

I am Mohamin, just an ordinary student who is good with words but not as impressive when it comes to describing himself. The things I feel but can't explain, I express them in raps. Listen closely while I perform, you just might understand why I do, what I do.

If my life was a book, its title would be 'Talking since 2004'. I am that girl who always loves talking even on stage, I am that girl who is feministic, passionate and positive, I am that girl who tries to look for a silver lining, I am that girl who is tranquil but chaotic, I am that girl who just can't get enough of music, I am that girl who can't put down a good book, and I am also that girl who's excited to give her TED talk. I am Rachel, a 14-year-old handful, living in Dubai, hoping for adventure to knock on my door. I don't know where life will take me, but I love a good mystery so I can't wait to find out.
