Stay Away From People
Rajna Begum reads her speech Stay Away From People, on being a Muslim in 2017.
Rajna is is a member of our Young Leaders programme. The Almeida Young Leaders is a scheme giving young people with something vital to say the tools and platform to do so. Each young leader has been mentored by a writer and director to develop their ideas, structuring a speech and skills in public speaking.
Rajna believes that it is important to feel you have a voice and uses her role as Headgirl to provide students with the opportunity to have their voices heard to bring about the changes they want to see. When she is not negotiating with teachers she is busy with boxing, writing lyrics and rapping.
She has a strong desire to help people and has worked with her local constituency office to provide constituents with the support and guidance they require. In the future she hopes to be able to travel and have a positive impact on the world by working as a diplomatic service officer.
