About

Quite simply, this site started as a way to get things off my chest and developed into a portal of many things, mainly climate change, stories from around the world, identity and mental health based on my own experiences.

The name ‘Stanisland’ is an amalgamation of the word ‘Stan’, meaning ‘land’, where my father’s family hails from (Pakistan) and my maternal grandfather’s name ‘Stanislav’ from L’viv, Ukraine. As equally similar as they sound, it highlights the idea of how similar we are.

So on this site, you’ll find a library of internal compendious gup-shup jibber-jabber, and hopefully something of value.
