Interview For the Sister-hood team

I've been meaning to write an article illustrating my fair trade journey for the Sisterhood team some time but then I had surgery for a rototar cuff and everything stopped.

After months of physiotherapy I finally edited my interview.

 

My Interview 

 

About Sister-hood

Sister-hood is an award-winning digital magazine spotlighting the diverse voices of women of Muslim heritage.

What is sister-hood?

''Women of Muslim heritage are always in the news – as victims, as ‘jihadi brides’, in innumerable pieces on hijab.

We are endlessly spoken for, and spoken about. 

It’s time we got to speak for ourselves.

If we can’t get heard through mainstream media outlets, then it’s time to build our own. We cannot allow ourselves to be placed on the margins of debates that directly concern us. Produced by Fuuse, my own independent media and arts production company,  sister-hood will ensure that our vital contributions to these debates are heard.''
