Mrittika ‘Mou’ Sarin is a queer Indian writer, raised both Baltimore and New Delhi by parents who are from neither. Before getting her MFA in screenwriting from UCLA, she was a writer on the official Indian remake of CRIMINAL JUSTICE (HBO’s THE NIGHT OF) as well as a creative producer on the Indian remake of THE OFFICE. As a development executive, her cultural fluency was vital for projects made in India for an international audience. She was recently selected to be a student representative for the Center of Scholars and Storytellers, an initiative that aims to bring together content creators and researchers to better address issues like mental health in children’s media. She is passionate about exploring social issues and incorporating complex relationships in all her work. In her spare time, she likes to think about things like globalization and identity.
