I spent two weeks at my uncle’s home in
where I shared the space with a restless cat and ultimately managed to overcome
my Elurophobia. You can read more about this here.
I also recently had a piece published on Sister-hood which is a digital publication that I think will be revolutionary for women of Muslim heritage. I wrote about the removal of my hijab and abaya which you can read here. After the piece was published, I was invited onto the BBC Asian Network radio to further discuss my experience. Although it was nerve-wracking and my first time on the radio, it made me realise just how essential it is for me to work on my public speaking. You can listen to my interview here; it begins at 02:11:00 and again at 02:25:00.
I have several skeletal blog posts that I am working on, however the Venlafaxine barrier often takes a few hours to work through thereby impeding my progress. I need to make more of an effort to share my writing and gain exposure but I have always written for myself and I suppose it never occurred to me that people would want to read my narrative.
