Scottish Asian Women’s Award For Achievement

Scottish Asian Women’s Awards

The Scottish Asian Women’s Awards, organised by the Scottish Asian Women’s ­Association, was held at Hampden Park on 13th March, with First Minister Alex Salmond among the guests.

I’m delighted that I won the Award For Achievement Against All Odds presented by Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Deputy First Minister of Scotland. This award recognises the achievements of a Scottish Asian woman in the face of adversity and challenging circumstances – a true modern day heroine.

I was emotional getting the award as it reminded me of why I started campaigning and writing. Here is a video clip that captured the moment.
