I found comfort in discovering commonalities, despite coming from different cultural backgrounds and having our own different experiences, so my work aims to elevate these voices and stories.
I am a Writer and Director whose work focusses on themes of cultural identity. The exploration of my own cultural identity journey, as a half Moroccan and British woman, has been the driving force behind my projects of short filmed interviews and my Graduate Fashion Film, ‘Treasure’ looking at themes of homogeny, grief, female support, otherness and racial social exclusion.
My work aims to elevate voices and tell stories of personal experiences of cultural identity. ‘Treasure’ seeks to feel relatable to those who have gone through their own journey and to inspire others who, like me, feel afraid to begin this journey due to their own traumas and fears. Also, to shed light on the topic to people who perhaps don’t see their culture as something to be considered, for example those who come from majority ethnic groups and to help young people realise the difficulties that arise from confusion, shame and other emotions regarding issues surrounding cultural identity.
