I was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand to a Fiji-Gujarati Muslim family, and have lived with Muscular Dystrophy for most of life. I’ve spent the last 10 years writing and speaking about how the different parts of my identity shaped my life and belonging in Aotearoa and the world. That included everything from my experiences with education, work, and travel with a disability, to opinions on racism, ableism, and Islamophobia. 


Story-telling is a powerful way to understand how far we have come and how far we have to go. But where do we go from there? How do we make sustainable steps to a more accessible and inclusive world?


I work alongside businesses and organisations to design welcoming places and experiences for everyone regardless of background or circumstance – everyone from people with disabilities, those for whom English is not their first language, and ethnic and religious minorities.
