Her artistic pulse got rejuvenated when she moved to S. Loius with her family. She started the platform Rise + Wander for her art creating excursions that was initially aimed to keep herself moving but the spark got a massive response from public.

Some of Afyn Shah’s works
Roman Payne’s written piece about wandering moved her to keep discovering the newness element and find beauty in everything. It is this one:
“Wandering is the activity of the child, the passion of the genius; it is the discovery of the self, the discovery of the outside world, and the learning of how the self is both ‘at one with’ and ‘separate from’ the outside world. These discoveries are as fundamental to the soul as ‘learning to survive’ is fundamental to the body. These discoveries are essential to realizing what it means to be human. To wander is to be alive.”
