I am currently campaigning for the rights of young refugees with Jawaab, a grassroots movement against racism, hate crime and Islamophobia.
Outside my work with Jawaab, I am Media and Campaigns Officer at YoungMinds, a charity working to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. In the past I have worked in youth and parent participation roles, and am particularly interested in participatory research methods and practices.
A belief in the power of authentic storytelling to achieve social change is another energising force behind my work. I recently received a Winston Churchill Fellowship to research the role of museums, archives and digital storytelling in the ongoing movement against HIV/AIDS.
