Podcast 4: Rabia Nasimi

In this episode, Kirthi speaks to Rabia Nasimi. Rabia, now 24 years old, arrived in the UK in 1999, on the back of a refrigerated lorry, aged just five-years-old. Rabia's family were forced to flee Afghanistan after her father, an academic, had become a target under the Taliban's destructive rule. Now, Rabia is studying for a PhD at Cambridge University. Alongside this, she supports the education of other refugees in the UK through her award-winning work for the Afghanistan and Central Asian Association (ACAA). She recently won a We Are the City 'Rising Star' award. Listen here.
