My name is Hajra, I am a young female British Pakistani Muslim-Gosh that’s a mouthful. Growing up in Britain I’ve seen how being a young British Pakistani Muslim (excuse the mouthful again) has gotten more difficult over time. The two cultures are very contrasting and there are many issues within my own Pakistani/Muslim community that perhaps my friends who solely come from a British community may not understand.
For many years, I have been interested in social issues and was more interested to discuss them, oppose to my peers who rather discuss about Taylor Swift’s new single. I believe there are indeed many faults in my own host community that need to be bought to light. Education and enlightenment is what I aim to convey. Along with discussing matters others may be uncomfortable to address, my blog is an also a form of escapism for me. A hobby that gives me great pleasure, therefore just a reminder I am not a university lecture who has exceptional grammar skills so please mind the “standard” grammar used 🙂
Hence, I’ve decided to start a blog, here I wish to quite simply pour my heart, express my views and rant. Mainly on matters which people who are of a similar background face on a daily basis.
This is a light-hearted blog that is open, honest and slightly sarcastic, which aims to keep its shit as real as possible.
