Campaigner in London, UK
I am a campaigner, designer, social entrepreneur and a proud British Muslim feminist.
Think of all the unknown 'Third World' artisans, recipes, culture, destinations we as a world have yet to unearth. Isn't it time we saw past just the constant poverty and crises? To recognise and celebrate their rich heritage and artisans at grassroots level? That's my mission.
Lovedesh®, is a new British luxury start up brand I created. Bringing new food, design and travel experiences. I want to revolutionise how we connect, see and experience folks in war-torn and poorest nations, which the UN calls 'LDCS'. Trump and others like him call them "sh**holes". To persuade the rest of the world, I created the #LTTTW campaign to help change negative opinions. I am starting with Bangladesh - it's my heritage and am inspired by my beloved father, an immigrant from this land, who built his life in UK. And helped me get socially mobilised - now I want to help others get these same privileges.
I want to change how life sucks for folks fleeing conflict, garment workers and poor artisans. Read my story here
Amcariza Foundation, is my niche charity I and few others volunteer to get world to celebrate and seed fund 'Third World' sole traders, directly at grass roots level.
I also comment/speak a lot via Yasmin C & Associates on overcoming the odds by escaping the backward ghettoised British Bangladeshi community I grew up in, mental health (Complex PTSD), surviving domestic abuse and hardship of being a lone parent - while running a start up. I also talk of how Islam is so misunderstood. All this is why I work hard every day, to be the change I want to see in the world
