Ayeesha is a passionate learner and educator who conducts quiz nights all over the city. An IB PYP teacher by day, she has a thirst for trivia and enjoys researching interesting and unique quiz topics.

Even if you don’t know the answer, it should be interesting enough that you want to know because quizzes seek to celebrate a love of learning.
