I recently completed a BSc in Psychology at Queen Mary University where I focused on the neural impact of early development. My final year research showed me the impact early childhood experiences can have on the brain in adulthood. This is especially important for children with disabilities as early support and interventions can aid development.

Working with children with special needs has shown me how children flourish when in suitable high-quality environments which meet their needs. The lack of culturally competent care can prevent Muslim families from gaining support.

A Masters in social work will enable me to advocate for Muslim families in the social care field by researching the lived-experiences of Muslim families and highlighting the importance of meeting religious and cultural needs.
