Ban Haidous is an aspiring writer and student. She is currently studying at Irvine Valley College with the hopes to attend the University of Southern California later on. She has always loved literature ever since she was a kid. Growing up, she knew she wanted to pursue a writing career. As an English major, she has a natural inclination towards writing. When she gets older, she hopes to become a fictional author.
She wants to write books that change the way people view life. She wants her writing to inspire others as well as create a different sense of reality to her audience. In her free time, she likes to tutor high school students, mainly in English and Math. She loves teaching others and enjoys the idea of someone improving due to her help.
Because of this, Haidous is also interested in the teaching department and would like to become a college professor in the future. Haidous is a big reader. When she isn’t writing for school and her work, she loves to spend her time reading, mainly classic feminist authors. She has a large collection of some of her favorite female authors such as Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, and the Brontë sisters. She also loves to write random stories or things she finds interesting in her free time. She also enjoys spending her time dog-sitting her friends’ dogs since she is a major dog lover.
Her love for animals is what allows for her strong passion in writing about them. Haidous has had two German Shepherds by the name of Koda and April. After her two dogs passed, she adopted a Bombay cat named Toothless. She currently lives in California with her two siblings and both of her parents. View on Furzly.
I am an animal lover that enjoys research, writing, learning, and sharing with others. I come from the hard sciences and enjoy analysis and creating graphs in my free time! I am also an avid swimmer and runner, I would do a triathlon, but I hate bicycling! I did my first Spartan race recently and will do another one as soon as it gets warm again. In addition to writing, I am an online ESL teacher to some of the cutest kids in the world!
Animals have been a huge passion of mine since I was a small child. I currently own a dog and two cats, but more are coming!…eventually. To appease my lovely brood with everything they could want, I work as a high school English teacher, but I have experience in many other industries, including restaurants, fitness, and operations. I’ve been writing since I was a teenager. In my adult years, I’ve written a lot of academic and opinion pieces. In my spare time, I read, work out, perform various jobs at my school (including theater consultant, assistant director, and athletic department secretary), and spend as much time with my two-year old daughter as I possibly can.
A professed Professional Whippet Aficionado living in the real-life show of Portlandia. When I’m not writing, I’m being yelled at by thieves (Loss Prevention) or snuggled up with my natural-born children; Edmund, my 8-year-old Whippet and sea dragon and Fern, my five-year-old firstborn and lovable Mad Queen mix.
I’m finishing up my degree in Professional Communications from Florida State University remotely, with a minor in Sociology. I’m married to an artist/x-ray tech who has a different last name because we are just fun like that. I’ve had dogs and cats since childhood, rode horses English style for seven years, and have been fascinated by animals my entire life (except chimps, insects, and birds; sorry guys).

She enjoys taking photos of animals and taking care of her inseparable twin kittens she adopted from a local animal rescue as a pair. Alannah occasionally borrows her friend’s dogs so she can have her daily dose of dogs as well. To build Furzly, Alannah will focus on growing social media and marketing strategies. She will spread brand awareness and information on Furzly. One day she will open a marketing firm, and use the profits to establish an animal rescue.

In her free time, she paints, draws, and works on her blog. Whenever she travels to experience the world, she does. Never staying in one place, Emme is an adventurous person that believes being spontaneous is good for the soul. Originally from Portland, Oregon she currently finds herself in Salt Lake City, Utah and hopes to move back home after she finishes her degree.
