The Pioneers Conference is a Study Higher conference aimed at inspiring young girls to study higher and think ahead to the future. I was invited to share my own experiences of studying, working and running my own business. I was asked to speak to the students and sit on the panel alongside other inspiring women.

“The Pioneers Conference aims to help support the progression of Pakistani and Bangladeshi girls into Higher Education. Insia instantly stood out to us as a potential role model for our students because of her impressive achievements and commitment to social mobility. She delivered a powerful presentation to the Conference attendees on the personal and professional journey she has made to overcome certain barriers and achieve her goals. Her enthusiasm, passion and energy was truly inspirational and had a profound effect on the students – so much so, that one of the students spoke about having butterflies after her presentation! Furthermore, Insia’s warm and professional manner meant that she was an absolute pleasure to work with at every stage of the Conference, and we are grateful to her for all of her help in making the event a success!”
