About me
My name is Nadia, I am an Aziz Foundation scholar studying for an MSc in Space, Risk and Disaster Reduction at UCL, part time. In 2018, I co-founded The Delicate Mind C.I.C to address issues around mental health, faith and identity. To do this, I worked with BBC Woman’s Hour, BBC Asian Netowrk, ATN Bangla TV to raise awareness of mental health issues within the South Asian Muslim community. Our work was also featured in The Times. I believe in building long lasting meaningful business relationships. This has been crucial to broadening the scope of TDM’s outreach to an international level. We launched our first international partnership at Athens, Greece with Hestia Hellas In March 2019. In March 2019 , I was head hunted by the World Youth Alliance’s Regional Director to advise the organisation on the establishment of their UK chapter. I am passionate about youth advocacy and education. In January 2019 I began volunteering as a London representative for UK Youth Voice. In 2019 I was recognised for my 7 year long commitment to public service at the Asian Women of Achievement Awards. I also became part of the Franco British Council’s Local Leaders Programme to promote social mobility across the UK and France. I am thrilled to be continuing to make a global impact on key issues that concern young people as a Global Shaper, at the World Economic Forum’s London hub. Here I am working on projects concerning unity & the future of work. I am looking for a part time role to supplement my studies. My aim is to utilise my academic knowledge and strategic project development skills to add value to organisations.
