Whether it’s chasing interviews in Montreal or writing fantasy short stories, Shahroze is almost always busy.

Shahroze looks forward to finally being able to edit creative pieces with Undivided Magazine and help creators get the experience they need for their careers. When he isn’t busy, Shahroze can be found singing, sketching, writing, or reading. He’s also a polyglot–fluent in Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi, French, and of course, English!

Hailing from Toronto, Canada (unless she is on one of her many travels), Tori spends most of her time listening to podcasts, doing yoga, reading, and writing, whether for fun or for work. She has spent her entire life putting pen to paper, which has culminated in her hunt for a place in the writing industry. With an Honours BA from York University in Professional Writing and International Relations, and experience as as News Editor and, currently, Managing Editor at Excalibur Publications and technical writing at ENGIE Services under her belt, Tori is thrilled to help contributors publish their best work at Undivided Magazine, and perhaps write a few things of her own.
