“From Chaiwallah to Playwright: The Rise of a Pakistani American Writer”


This is the full video of my recent Google Talk where I recount my unexpected, surreal, ridiculous, hopefully amusing journey from an overweight, shy, dorky Pakistani American kid who spoke 3 words of English to becoming a paid writer and storyteller. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Wajahat, you are hilarious! And inspiring! I would love to meet you. Please come to Chicago on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. I’m free around 4:00 pm. I’ll be at the University of Chicago, Swift Hall, Third Floor Lecture Room. I know it’s a long trip for you. I know I’m asking you to give up your Halloween. I’ll make it up to you. I’ll bring you some candy. What do you say?
