I am a collaborator who loves connecting unique ideas to create one big vision that will impact the world in a positive way. Since a young age I’ve always been involved in something “extra” from school council to community projects.

I'm becoming increasingly passionate about the promotion and influence of the progression of minorities in the technology sector. Which has led me to co-found a forum called Muslamic Makers which aims to encourage and provide confidence for Muslims to seek a career in Tech. This involves networking with existing Muslim entrepreneurs and leaders, and providing a platform for them to share their experiences with young muslims who aspire to work in the sector. I’m also 2017 fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust and has been awarded a prestigious fellowship exploring Muslim Women in Technology in USA, UAE and Pakistan.

Beyond the world of startups and technology. I graduated in Media and Communication at Goldsmiths College, University Of London; I love Public speaking, filmmaking, campaigning and once took part in the One and Other project, in which I stood on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square for a whole hour.
