Zahira is often called a "Renaissance Woman," which means a woman who has acquired knowledge and proficiency in more than one field. In her school years, she was advised to 'choose one thing,' but it's just not in Zahira's nature.

THE RITE successfully played for four nights in Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond in Amsterdam. Each performance was accompanied by an after-talk with the audience, moderated by human rights attorney Geraldine Moodley.
