As well as writing, I have a strong passion for video editing. Whether it be a trailer, interview or even a short documentary-style clip for a particular issue, it is something I very much enjoy!
So I hope that you find something of interest below!
BBC South Today 2019- ‘Why I wear hijab’.
In a visit to Hambledon Primary school, I taught some young children what the hijab was and what it means to me. I used this piece to address some issues that I felt the media didn’t cover fully and represented hijabi women fairly.
Ramadan 2018 Vlog on BBC South Today
Working with a Journalist from South Today, I managed to record a set of vlogs detailing my experience with Ramadan. I created weekly vlogs, entailing all my thoughts, feelings and struggles. It then got edited and broadcasted on the News at 6!
True Grit unofficial Trailer
This was my very first video made, as part of an A-level extended project (which received an A* yayy).
Muslims: A first documentary
When I first joined uni, I wanted to take a break from the constant academic style essays that you have to churn out one after the other. So, I mixed my two passions, the creative arts, and social issues!
At this point, I had no tech to hand, little to no planning, and no editing skills as I am self-taught. So given the circumstances, I can say I was satisfied with the outcome. (I’m not anymore, but I was at the time).
Student Opinions on Lecturer Strike
A video that I didn’t make, but a piece of video journalism that I featured in. I talked about my worries about the lecturer strike and more importantly the effect that it has on political participation.
Rhapsodies of Music
This, I didn’t make but, was featured in and am very passionate about. It concludes the emotions and feelings that music brings to people and is a great highlight of individualism.
