Raiah graduated from Occidental College with a BA in Music Composition, studying under Emmy-winning composer Adam Schoenberg. There, she discovered her love for musical theatre writing. They are an alum of the NYU Tisch Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. There she has found her writing voice, and solid collaborators. She is the composer and co-orchestrator of Nayika Mixtape, a reinterpretation of heroine tropes from Indian classical literature and art. Raiah is currently part of the third cohort of the MTF Makers™ progam where they are continuing to write their thesis musical Inevitable Transitions, an original '90s coming-of-age supernatural story.
Raiah had the immense pleasure to be a part of the 2021-2022 Maestra Mentorship program, where she was (and continues to be) the mentee of Broadway’s leading copyist, Emily Grishman.
As a queer, Jewish, and neurodivergent artist, Raiah is dedicated to centering her artistic practices around lifting up marginalized voices. When she is not writing, she enjoys embroidery, drinking iced coffee, and going to drag shows.
