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.
Sister-hood is an award-winning digital magazine spotlighting the diverse voices of women of Muslim heritage.
''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.''
The World Fair Trade Day is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that takes place on the second Saturday of May each year. So mark your calendar: 12 May 2018 is the #FairTradeDay.
It is an inclusive worldwide festival of events celebrating Fair Trade as a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty, climate change and unfair practices in supply chains.
WFTO and its members believe that trade must benefit the most vulnerable and deliver sustainable livelihoods by developing opportunities for small and disadvantaged producers.

My name is Sabeena, I love fair trade chocolate, travelling and writing blogs and producing films and about the fair trade producers and artisans I visit when I'm well.
I've lived with invisible disabilities for 30 years and chronic pain for last 4.
I've tried to keep the video short because my left shoulder is very painful.
Its been frustrating explaining my invisible medical disabilities and chronic pain to individuals who couldn't care less.
I'd like to change the narrative!
Another painful month and a stressful MRI scan and multiple appointments to see my orthopaedic consultant. My left shoulder has been excruciatingly painful.
I was happy to receive my copy of Bruce Crowther's book 'Not In My Lifetime.'
I attended day one of the annual International Fair Trade Towns Conference 2021.
