I am a 23-year-old journalist and blogger from London, UK. In 2014, I graduated from City University London with a degree in BA Creative Industries and since then, I have been working with the BBC as a Broadcast Journalist, focusing on online journalism.

Previously I have worked for BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, which was my first ever job since graduating and still occasionally work for the programme during parliament recess.

I kept pursuing my love for news and politics and started working for BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show and Daily & Sunday Politics. I have covered various political stories since working for the BBC including the 2015 General Election, 2016 Local and Mayoral Elections, EU Referendum and the fast moving events that unfolded after the Brexit vote.

I also work for the 24/7 Digital Video team and have covered various UK and World stories including breaking and developing news such as the Paris and Brussels attacks as well as numerous other terror related news.

At the beginning of 2016, I started working for BBC Parliament channel, live captioning names and supporting text the House of Commons, House of Lords, Westminster Hall, Select Committees, National Assemblies, European Parliament and annual political party conferences – as well as researching future sessions in Parliament and writing captions for future coverage.

I mainly write and speak out about mental health due to my own personal experience with an eating disorder and various other mental health issues. 

I am on a mission to break down the cultural barriers of women in Islam and the South Asian culture, which I feel very strongly about.

I also have a passion for fashion, beauty and health and fitness.

I have written for various publications including The GuardianThe Huffington Post, Time to Change and Beat and have recently been featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Any views I express in this blog is mine and mine only, not the BBC’s.
