How often do you tell yourself ‘I just don’t have the time to look after my hair’? Finding time for your hair when you’re expected to work, study, care for family, socialise and stay active can seem almost impossible! I’m sure many can relate with tying our hair back into a bun or stuffing it under headscarves/hijab and calling it a…

As an educator, I advocate for the best possible education for every child. However, as a black educator, I recognise that the system does not allow this to happen for every child. Especially black children.

For context, I am what you would call the triple burden: a Black Muslim Woman (BMW, if you will). Therefore, I am extremely proud to have broken barriers in educational settings. However, this is not about me. This is about witnessing the institutionalised racial biases, micro-aggressions and complete disregard for black children’s educational experiences in the UK. …

Hey there, stand-still. You, yes you!

The title probably has you thinking ‘huh?’ but I’ve always been one to give things away too quickly, therefore, that habit changes now. Along with many more.

Well, it all started when I was really young, when I first fell in love with reading. I used to read Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, you name it. By the age of 10, I was finishing Harry Potter books. I would go to the local library near my primary school, and just put my head in a book. My classmates always teased me about being such a bookworm, or a teacher’s pet. When I was young, paperbacks were the…

The importance of social media for a business.. Yes, social media!

The growing use of social media, initially linked to personal use where we all liked and commented on “selfies” as well as who’s with who, has been developing a more popular use in recent years. Yes, that’s what it’s being used for, business! The internet has made a huge impact for globalization has led to businesses finding solace in selling their services/products directly to customers. How they do this online, may you ask? Simple! Having read a shocking yet not so shocking statistic earlier on, I was able to understand why businesses are now going digital to grow their custom.
