Assalam aleykum! Shalom! Peace!
Welcome to Voice of Salam!
My name is Elizabeth and I’m a young British Muslim and human rights activist. I’ve been passionate about human rights and socio-political issues since discovering Amnesty International when I was at school. I also love discovering other languages and cultures and travelling.
I went on to study languages/translation and human rights at postgraduate level, including some study within Islamic Studies. I converted to Islam whilst in my final year at university.
My main interests include women’s rights, children’s rights, religious/cultural/linguistic rights, minority, refugee and migrant rights and issues surrounding post-colonialism, immigration, multiculturalism and both intercultural and interfaith work.
