I have been Muslim since birth (Pakistani father) but was raised as a Sikh. I became Muslim again about 38 years ago. I am mother of 4 and grandmother to 6. I have an Honours degree in Soical Sciences, a teaching Degree in Adult Ed and an M.A. in sociology. My dissertations have always focused on Muslim women and after 9/11 with a focus on British Muslim women. Currently, I volunteer with MEND and am involved with their 'Mending Communities' project for reverts. I am also hoping, Inshallah to start a PhD in 2019 funding dependent, looking at British reverts and their struggles as outlined in my article.
