I’m Khadijah, Director of Muslim Women Connect, and by day, Senior Communications Officer at the Houses of Parliament.

I am passionate about community development and believe there is a lot of work to be done to help leave this world a little better than it was before we got here. It is this conviction that has led me to spending lengthy stints of time at various charities, NGO’s, schools and now Parliament doing what I love best. All of my past and current experiences made joining the MWC team a natural and effortless progression. This is the beauty of such networks, to so many of us, they feel like home. Not only does MWC uplift so many young Muslim women, but it proves to be a happy place for all those behind it. I’m constantly inspired and motivated to continue serving our community!

Nabilah Hussain, Creative Lead

‘I’m Nabilah, creative lead at MWC. I grew up and live in a town named Tunbridge Wells near the bottom-ish of the country, although I spend most of my time on trains – travelling to London. I graduated a couple of years ago and work as a graphic designer; my heart lies with social enterprises, charities, and organisations doing good, wholesome, ethical stuff. It’s important to me for my work to have depth; to be a source of benefit / positive change, somehow, somewhere. My portfolio ranges from editorial design and fashion shoot touch ups to illustrating for organic skincare brands and start ups! When I’m not designing for random projects and campaigns – I’m probably drinking something hot, and writing down ideas and inspo for more projects and campaigns  // Sending love to all the MWC supporters and team, so grateful to be a part of this magical journey and growing community of strong, inspiring women!’

Fatema Johra, Events Co-ordinator

‘I’m Fatema. I went from mentee to events coordinator and can’t imagine my journey without MWC. It has always been quite difficult to find role models that I can relate to and MWC are creating these opportunities to ensure the next generation don’t fall behind. I have met some amazing people working in great places pushing the barriers. MWC inspires me to keep focused on my aspirations through their hard work and drive; I could not have met a more passionate group of people! I am very glad that I met those behind all the hard work and could join them to see MWC get bigger and better in 2018. I graduated this year and am looking to use Maths in an exciting way as a career! I’m delighted to be a part of the awesome MWC team’.
