“Special moment as we think it's the 1st time (but don't have data) that  a British Muslim woman has been appointed as Head of a UK Diplomatic Post. I won’t be the last.”

Younis thanked her father “who used to drop me at Digbeth Coach Station at 4am so I could get to my work interviews.”

“To the girls who look like me,  who are battling prejudice, racism & sexism from within communities & outside, who are told they can't do it, or that they don't sound or look the part. Don't let anyone dim your power.  You can change the world,” she concluded.
