Parental pride...

18th October 2017

Hameeda Hussani arrived in UK 10 years ago from Afghanistan never having been to school or able to speak English. Earning money for her family by weaving carpets before and after school she was determined to forge a career in law. Hameeda has now achieved her first-class law degree at Anglia Ruskin University and she is now about to begin studying for her masters and a legal practice qualification. I first photographed Hameeda a year ago when when she and a fellow student had achieved success in a UK wide legal student competition.
