The Establishment ran from October 2015 to April 2019. We championed the voices and stories of those marginalized by mainstream media, publishing more than 4,000 stories by more than 900 writers. Thank you to everyone who supported us and made The Est. shine. (If you can't find the story you're looking for here, check out our entire archive on Medium!)
Aliya Mistry is an emerging writer, exploring the genre of identity by adding a Hindu-Canadian twist. Dysfunctional families, culture and religion, and sometimes unconventional scandals, she believes, are topics that can be seen through a variety of lenses. As a recent graduate of the University of Toronto, Aliya hopes her unique voice can be heard by all.
