I am passionate about


In my current role as a CVE Advocate at the KAF, my knowledge on countering violent extremism (CVE) has come to fruition. I lead on policy work relating to CVE advising multilareral fora on the UK’s response to preventing radicalisation in schools and young people. Specifically I have led seminars and symposiums on what the driving factors are that lead to radicalisation. I devise mechanisms on how best schools, parents and communities can inoculate young people from this threat and how we can develop counter narratives that develop critical thinking among students to build resilience. This provides me ample experience in countering extremism on a day-today basis and allows me to impact positive change in the very society that I call home. My role sees me play an active role locally, nationally and globally, and allows me to me to launch and engage multiple initiatives to prevent extremism from the community and organisation level.
