Onjali Q. Rauf* is the award-winning author of her debut book, The Boy at the Back of the Class. Her newest book is called The Star Outside My Window and delicately deals with the issue of domestic abuse.
She is also the founder of Making Herstory, an organisation working to help end the abuse and trafficking of women and girls in the UK and beyond. In her spare time, she delivers emergency aid convoys for refugee families surviving in Calais and Dunkirk.
When she was little, she was always being told off in class for daydreaming – when really, she was trying to spot a unicorn and thinking up stories! She eats at least one piece of chocolate every day and would one day like to fly a plane all on her own!
