I am born and bred in Bradford, and still live in the constituency with my family. It was an absolute honour and a privilege to have been elected as the Member of Parliament for Bradford West in 2015.
I was previously a women's rights campaigner, and a former chair of mental health charity Sharing Voices Bradford the largest BME mental health charity outside of London.
I've worked as a carer for children and adults with disabilities and spent time as a NHS Commissioner and the director of a regional leadership program for local government.
Since been elected in May 2015, I have become a Member of the Home Affairs select committee and have a particular passion in working on issues around education, prevent, islamophobia, integration, social mobility and poverty.
