Aliya Rose Asif Ogden

Aliya Rose Asif Ogden is a highly imaginative, passionate and creative nine-year-old author based in Dubai.  She is proudly Australian Pakistani and attends Nord Anglia International School.


Ogden's favourite subject is English and she loves to play with her siblings Rayyan and Ayesha. She enjoys netball, football, swimming and everything Harry Potter.


Ogden loves reading and carries a book wherever she goes. This passion inspired her to write her own book, Winny’s Quest. It chronicles a tale of belonging, uniqueness and friendship centred on a watermelon named Winny who sets off on a journey to find the mysterious Bow Land in search of answers. She is currently working on her second book, Perky Finds Her Wave, documenting the adventures of a penguin who loves to surf.


Ogden desires to become an author and to make the world a better place.
