I’m a multimedia journalist specialising in features, pop culture commentary and creating viral threads on Twitter. I’m also experienced in broadcast journalism, specifically podcasting and radio.
Currently, I host a weekly news and culture podcast called ‘Your Broccoli Weekly’ and freelance as a writer in my spare time. My work has been featured in places like Refinery29, gal-dem, Bustle, The Independent, Cosmopolitan, VICEUK and i-D. I was previously the National Editor at The Tab, where I also worked as a Staff Writer for two years.
I’m a first-generation Muslim immigrant who was born in Uzbekistan and moved to the UK at the age of 10. I’m a native speaker of Russian and Uzbek (although the latter is very rusty.) I also hold a History of Art degree from the University of Warwick. I’m passionate about magnifying marginalised voices, diversifying the media and making news more accessible.
