My Voice Podcast - Disabled Women Belonging In Two Cultures

Anjum podcast cover

10th June 2023

In September last year our founder, Zubee and her friend and ex-colleague, Raya launched a new podcast called, My Voice, to give disabled people from ethnic minority backgrounds a platform to share their stories as these voices are often underrepresented. In our latest episode, we welcome our second guest, Anjum Khan.

Anjum has Cerebral Palsy and is partially sighted. She has a degree in Sociology and Social Policy. She is a British Indian, born and bred in Fulham, London. Her parents married and came to the UK in the early '70s.

In this episode, hosts Zubee and Raya Al Jadir, speak to Anjum about a sense of belonging and the differences between our parent's attitudes and experiences of disability, plus the opportunities we've had that we may not get back home.

We reflect on the journey through the education system, entering the workplace and our lives in general, as well as highlighting the many positivities while acknowledging the challenges and barriers we encounter.
