Born into an ethnic minority, I quickly grasped the degree of misrepresentation of such groups in society; the blame lying partially in failed integration and participation, as well as lack of representation at the political level. Being the eldest of two generations, I aimed to set the benchmark from a very young age; by pushing boundaries, so that the rest of my family could make the sky their limit when pursuing future aspirations. I believe the answer to most global problems lies in education, through educating people we can produce great thinkers, who in turn can collectively compose effective solutions.

Similarly, the root causation of misconceptions overwhelmingly points to the lack of awareness or specialised information of the matter. "No one who keeps his mind focussed entirely upon himself, can grow large, strong and beautiful in character" - Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)

I hope to overcome some of these common misconceptions through my blogs by debating the nature of controversial current affairs. The opinions in my blogs are all my own, and I would appreciate any constructive commentary (given sufficient grounding). "To do better is better than to be perfect" - Toba Beta

I aim to make the most of my academia, and grab the opportunities I am fortunate enough to be granted with both hands; in the hope of, one day making a change, big or small, in the world. Any progress, regardless of quantitave value is progress nevertheless and I believe it all starts from within. Limitations of influence only becomes a reality if you let it, your gender, ethnicity, religion, financial status is only an obstacle if you give it that status. "Be the change you want to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandhi

After graduating with a 2:1 from King's College London, I received a scholarship to continue as a Postgraduate in Conflict Resolution. I now work for an organisation called 'The Tuition Network' http://thetuitionnetwork.com in order to help students reach their full potential. This allows me to remain in touch with issues affecting young people and students.
