The Scottish Asian Women’s Awards, organised by the Scottish Asian Women’s Association, was held at Hampden Park on 13th March, with First Minister Alex Salmond among the guests.
I’m delighted that I won the Award For Achievement Against All Odds presented by Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Deputy First Minister of Scotland. This award recognises the achievements of a Scottish Asian woman in the face of adversity and challenging circumstances – a true modern day heroine.
I was emotional getting the award as it reminded me of why I started campaigning and writing. Here is a video clip that captured the moment.
