ABOUT THE GUEST

Maria Akhtar is a medical student who is deeply invested in all the fandoms, a Film enthusiast, and television is her whole personality. She started TikToking because her friends and family were tired of hearing all of her over-analyzing, so just started content creating this year. She loves theorizing and breaking down all the tv she watches, especially sitcoms, and dissecting and comparing fandoms has become a passion project, and getting into the MCU tv series combines both topics that bring her joy! On TikTok she goes by the handle @CallMeByThisNameMaria
