Safeena is one of our Edinburgh based board members. She first became involved with Amina MWRC when she was at university in the capacity of doing sessional work in Edinburgh and Aberdeen. She remembers this time fondly as it gave her the opportunity to work with many different people and organisations.
She stopped working with us a few years ago and then returned as a board member in November 2016. She enjoys being a part of the organisation in this different role because she meets many very inspirational women, attends some interesting events led or backed by Amina MWRC and values the work that we do.
As a day job Safeena practices law and is an advocate in Scotland. She learned to cycle as an adult and bought herself a burkini so she can also learn to swim. She hopes to inspire and encourage other women to also be active.
