Who am I?

I am a non-practising barrister, an author, a consultant, a teacher, a blogger, a writer, and a podcast host. My aim in life is to inspire our own and the next generation to turn challenges into coherent and meaningful solutions, focusing on humanity, leadership, and citizenship. Having been a refugee myself, my interest in humanity, leadership, and citizenship stems from this. Being a refugee taught me that life is a challenge in general. Life presents problems, and with an emphasis on humanity, leadership, and citizenship, I would like to dedicate the remainder of my life to encouraging our generation and the next to turn life's challenges into coherent and meaningful solutions.

What is my podcast playlist about?

My playlist is about inspiring our generation and the next to turn life's challenges into coherent and meaningful solutions, focusing on humanity, leadership, and citizenship.

2. The Slow Newscast

Why this podcast?

I love The Slow Newscast because it brings news slowly. Slow Newscast investigates and reports, and every week the podcast focuses on the stories that really matter in the UK and around the world. The podcast is hosted by Basia Cummings, once of the Guardian and Huffington Post, who takes stock with the help of colleagues from Tortoise and invited guests.
