Fatiha El-Ghorri – Underneath Fatiha’s colourful hijab is a mind full of cutting observations and engaging witticism of the life and times of a British Muslim woman.

She tackles some tough subjects like Islamophobia and dating by sharing her own experiences which are funny, thought provoking and honest!
