Journey – Fuzia

Journey - Fuzia

Riya Sinha, Co-Founder of Fuzia, visualized the concept of Fuzia while studying at Palo Alto High School, California as an 11-year-old.

She always loved creative writing as a child, so much so that she used to write creative endings of books when she wasn’t satisfied with the end!

Riya loved writing stories, so with the help of a family friend, she wrote a book called ‘Runaway Twins’.

She thought of the plot mostly by herself, just using her own imagination. It was about a pair of twins who solve a family mystery to help save their family.

Reading her book, a 6-year-old girl came up to her with utmost exhilaration to tell Riya that she was inspired to write a book too and that she has made her realize her true calling.

The incident seeded so deep in her and made her experience the potential of inspiration.

She wanted to influence all the girls and women around the world to get inspired by each other.

Thus, in 2012 she started Fuzia as a Writing club, a platform meant for school girls to share their writings and essays.
