@ VOL 9 ON JUN 12, 2019

A fun fact about Fatimah Abbass (albeit one of many!) #funfacts - is that her first 5 birthdays were in different countries (4 different continents!)

Prior to coming to London for University, she spent the latter of her life in Toronto, and then Lahore, Pakistan. Upon graduating in 2016, she chose to stay on and embrace this city -- one that she is exceptionally enthusiastic about.

An avid volunteer, she volunteers with over 8 organizations across social causes with an interest in fundraising.

Fatimah values doing her part within the humanitarian sector, while recognizing the importance of celebrating creativity, and the vibrancy of spaces we live in.

She loves to support local, help bridge gaps and get people excited about getting involved and attending events in #ldnont.

A part time photographer, she also enjoys making people laugh, building capacity (challenging fears!), pondering the complexities of the human condition, dancing and creating opportunities for joy.
