NADIYA HUSSAIN: FINDING MY VOICE
Born on Christmas Day to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain grew up in a Muslim family with 5 siblings, entered an arranged marriage age 20, and had never been on a train on her own until she travelled to film the first episode of the Great British Bake-Off.
Join the TV presenter, chef and bestselling author celebrating her memoir Finding My Voice, as she considers her roles as mother, Muslim, working woman and celebrity and questions the barriers which many women must cross to be accepted or heard. In her own warm, honest and humorous way, Nadiya highlights how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues despite our cultural, social and religious differences.
Presented by Words Weekend.
