Jamila Rizvi is a writer/author, journalist, commentator, change advocate, feminist and all round wonderful human being.
In 2018 Jamila was met with horrible news. She was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour. In the podcast, Jamila tells us of these challenging recent years…the multiple surgeries, the radiotherapy treatment the continuing recovery and the effects all of this has had on her life, her family and her mental health.
