My name is Danielle Khan. I’m a 27-year old American originally from Maine but currently based in Washington, D.C. working as Special Assistant to the Dean at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
I’m married to a Kashmiri from IOK and work as a human rights activist for the Kashmiri people, among other global issues.
What do you usually wear in daily life?
I would consider my personal style “chic/whimsical”. However, these days at home I’m wearing a lot of pandemic-inspired athleisure outfits/pajamas!
What is one thing you cannot do without?
My Pomeranian dog, Nahla (and I suppose my husband — sorry, that’s two!)
Your favourite tweeps?

What are your healthy habits?
- Going to bed at a reasonable time.

Your all time favourite movie?
It’s too difficult to just choose one, so I’d say some of my top favorites are:
- The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
What do you do in your spare time?
When I’m not spending time with my husband and dog, I enjoy reading about murder mysteries/unsolved cases, singing, dancing, and binge watching TV shows.
What’s your favourite holiday destination?
Anything tropical or on the Mediterranean (Turkey, Indonesia). Although I most prefer destinations off the beaten path.
