Synopsis

Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain celebrates the publication of her brand-new memoir, Finding My Voice, in her own warm, honest and humorous way, in conversation with Emma Freud.

 

Born to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Hussain grew up in a Muslim family with five siblings. She entered an arranged marriage aged 20, becoming a wife and mother herself. Hussein suffers with panic disorder and had never been on a train on her own until she travelled to film her first episode of the Great British Bake Off.

 

‘I was everything – a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother – but I still was nowhere near finding me,’ she reflects.

 

Join the TV presenter, chef and bestselling author as she considers her roles as mother, Muslim, working woman and celebrity, and questions the barriers which many women must cross to be accepted or heard.

 

Hussain highlights how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues despite our cultural, social and religious differences.
