I have just completed my undergraduate in History and Sociology at the University of Manchester. I have decided to embark upon a History MA, thanks to the Aziz Foundation scholarship. I wish to promote inclusivity and decolonise the curriculum, by ensuring that minority students have a voice: this is why I am a contributor for the student led magazine, ‘in: Colour’ because documenting and sharing our voices is essential in creating awareness of our history. Further, I attend talks held by ‘Race, Roots and Resistance’ whereby activists and academics address critical race issues through teaching and public engagement. I am also interested in investigative journalism and recovering the long history of state violence of ethnic minorities and bringing this to the public domain
