ITV Anglia Diversity Project: An Interview with BritBangla

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Media, News

How did you get the internship? An ITV Anglia journalist was in Cambridge last January to report on the progress of building the city’s first mosque. My mother Shahida Rahman, a Trustee of the Cambridge Mosque Trust, was interviewed by journalist Claire McGlasson. After they exchanged contact details, I decided to email Claire to find out if there […]

Ibrahim’s Review of 2017

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, History, London, Media, News, Review, Sport, Tennis

Annual review number nine! Can’t say I’m a novice at this anymore. I can already imagine next year’s review. We’ll be throwing a party. Cakes and balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. And cakes. I like cakes. Especially fresh cream. With a jam filling… But then the balloons burst, and I wake up. The calendar […]

From Sylhet To Cambridge: Reflecting On 60 Years Of Family History And Heritage

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, History, Media, News

During my school days, history was something that hardly filled me with excitement. Even watching Doctor Who episodes set in the past required serious effort to motivate and inspire me, but credit where it’s due, on most occasions they succeeded. Perhaps as a child, intrigued and fascinated by science fiction and technology (my uncles hold […]

Inventors Club Whitechapel: Driving Social Change Through Technology Within London’s East End

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, London, Media, News, Technology

Although I’m Cambridge born and raised and the library was where I spent most of my days (well not really, but I hope one can recognise my poor and laughable effort of referring to the Fresh Prince), my fascination of the richly-diverse region of Tower Hamlets in East London has grown exponentially in recent years. […]

I’m back! My first blog post of 2016! Let’s do the Sturridge… Wait… what? Oh yes… I haven’t blogged all year. Oops. Sorry everyone. My ONLY blog post of 2016. Technically that isn’t true though, I did write one blog post this year. It just wasn’t published on my website. More on that later… I’ve got to say, […]

Why Am I Using Digital Media To Engage And Empower The Youth Within The British Bangladeshi Community?

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, Media, News

Technology. It’s a wonderful thing. A source of fascination to me since childhood. Well, since my nursery school days to be precise. Two decades later, I’m using digital media to engage and interact with emerging young talent. So, how did it all start? As an energetic and inquisitive three-year-old, I was totally in awe of […]

Ibrahim’s Review of 2015

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Cricket, Events, Film, Football, Islam, Media, News, Radio, Religion, Review, Sport

Here we go again. Another annual review. My seventh actually. A great opportunity to reflect on a rollercoaster twelve months. As rollercoaster rides come, this has been quite a thrilling one. Sometimes a thriller doesn’t quite go the way you want it to. We’ve all seen a crazy game of football littered with goals – some may recall Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Newcastle United in […]

ITV The London Studios

The Road to Manchester

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Events, Film, Football, Islam, Liverpool FC, Media, News, Radio, Religion, Review, Sport

No. I have not become a Manchester City fan. Neither do I support that other club that is within close proximity to them. Don’t even go there. Liverpool FC through and through. JĂĽrgen Klopp – welcome to Anfield! Anyway, this blog post is not about football so let’s move on. Since the Limelight Film Awards took place in June, the last […]
