Naseem was born and raised in Kenya and moved to Milton Keynes in 2000. When she first arrived she was a single parent struggling to juggle work and childcare. She decided to open her own restaurant and now provides work there for women, who for cultural reasons might not be allowed to work with men. Her home-style Indian cooking is at the heart of her business together with her commitment to making a difference in her community.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
