    #49. Zahra Shah: A Woman In Tech

    #49. Zahra Shah: A Woman In Tech

    Zahra Shah is from the UK and is on a mission to grow Iraq’s tech ecosystem and build talent among youth, so that they can solve local issues using technology.
    She is a Program Manager for Re:Coded, whose purpose is to provide opportunities for young people affected by conflict to enter the tech industry and become entrepreneurs.
    Zahra is a ‘tech humanitarian’. She has previously worked at Gaza Sky Geeks, Gaza’s first accelerator and coding school, the UN, and various startups based in London and Amsterdam, including Groupon.
    In this episode we speak to Zahra about her mission in helping displaced and conflict affected youths to enter the digital economy and become entrepreneurs. We talk about her work with the UN, how technology can help in solving many humanitarian issues, Gaza Sky Geeks, living and working in Iraq, women in tech, her tips for entering the tech industry and so much more!
    We really enjoyed our chat with our fellow Londoner. We learnt a lot about how technology and a startup ecosystem can greatly benefit a generation of conflict affected youth to step in to the digital space, something that we didn't know existed before we spoke with Zahra

    #48. Tez Ilyas: Funny, Thought Provoking and Muslim

    Tez Ilyas is an award winning British comedian and actor who started comedy in 2010 as a hobby. He is regarded as one of most celebrated rising stars in British comedy.
    After studying biochemistry at university, Tez went on to work as a civil servant for a decade. He was told by his friends that he was quite funny, so he started to speak at open mic events in London and soon discovered that he was quite good at stand-up comedy!
    Tez left his job to pursue show business full time and achieved phenomenal success with his debut tour, Tez Talks, followed by his own series on BBC based on his show.
    In 2016, his highly anticipated follow up show, Made in Britain, debuted at the infamous Edinburgh Festival Fringe and went on to sell out every performance.
    In 2018, Tez toured with his latest show, Teztify, which he also performed at the prestigious venue, Live at the Apollo. Tez also appears on the hit BBC show, Man Like Mobeen, where he plays the character ‘Eight’.
    On the show today, we talk about how Tez stumbled into comedy, dealing with nerves on the stage, transitioning from stand-up to acting, and so much more!
    Please excuse our giggles and laughter but it was too hard to resist laughing at Tez’s jokes throughout this episode.

    #47. Nazia Nasreen: How a Toy Guided Someone to Islam

    #47. Nazia Nasreen: How a Toy Guided Someone to Islam

    Original broadcast date: 11th June 2018
    Nazia Nasreen is the founder of Ibraheem Toy House, the world’s leading online Islamic toy store. She’s also a mum of 2 children, a wife and an audiologist.
    In 2014, Nazia founded Ibraheem Toy House whilst on maternity leave for her second child. She always struggled to find good quality Islamic toys for her daughter to make religious education fun. She decided to create her own online toy store and via word of mouth, this quickly spread and ending up being a full-time business.
    Nazia shares her story on how, as an introverted and a shy person, she would attend networking events and, whilst being the only Muslim woman, she would volunteer to present her business and really throw herself outside of her comfort zone. She talks about running out of money and going back to her old job to raise cash, how her product inspired someone to accept Islam and why she wanted to quit and sell her business but instead Allah had other plans!
    Nazia has an inspiring story. From selling toys on a single Facebook page to now having a team of people working for her.
    We were inspired by her and proud to see a Muslim woman on top of her game!
