Read: UCLA salutes former student and teacher Abdi Nazemian on debut YA novel

UCLA congratulated Abdi on his debut YA novel, THE AUTHENTICS. Check it out by clicking here.

Here is what Abdi had to say:

“I learned a lot about writing from taking classes in the Writers’ Program, but perhaps even more from teaching in it. From my students, I learned how to nurture new ideas, stay focused, and retain a sense of optimism and inspiration. Teachers truly learn more from students than vice versa. My latest novel is the most personal piece of writing I’ve ever done, and tells a quintessentially Los Angeles story, so I’m especially excited to share it with the UCLA Extension community.”
