#69 Saima Ashraf Inspiring Journey Into Politics: No Home, No Money, No English

Councillor Saima Ashraf is single mum of three and deputy leader of Barking and Dagenham Council in East London. One of her greatest moments in 2017 is that she opened the labour party conference for Jeremy Corbyn.

When Saima first came to Barking & Dagenham, she didn’t know english and very soon lost her home and all the security of a complete family. Her husband abused her, she had no money and was left mentally and emotionally drained.

Key Takeaways

  • How did she overcome the fear of talking in front of a crowd?
  • Going through the pain of abandonment – “It’s a very sensitive point of my life. What made me carry on was my children.”
  • A big turn in her life – Saima Ashraf started volunteering for the police in the Maritime house.
  • Her wonderful journey into politics.
