Safia Khan is an aspiring hyperpolyglot. For a number of years, she volunteered her services as a copy editor in the education and corporate sectors. She has a keen interest in Early Childhood Development and holds a Bachelor of Social Science Honours degree in Political Science from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Her research looked into the extent to which students identified with and grouped together based on race at the Howard College Campus of UKZN and the impact that these findings may have for future integration if extrapolated across the country. She hopes that ASRI’s Future Leaders Programme will equip her with the expertise to assist people of vulnerable circumstances to communicate their plight to individuals and institutions that can partner with them in finding sustainable solutions.
