Watch This Face - Magda Ali

Watch This Face - Magda Ali

Issue 64 January 2010

Magda Ali is a young woman of steely ambition. at just 21 she has finished an editorial internship with the financial times, been head-hunted by Vault Publishing to work in business reporting and was selected to be part of the Young Muslim advisory group; meeting with cabinet ministers ed Balls and hazel Blears to discuss solutions to problems faced by young Muslims in Britain. Yet, this is just the beginning for Magda – her thirst for knowledge and passion has her describing journalism as a craft she believes in – writing not because she can, but because she has to. Born in somalia, Magda is part-italian but was raised in London; a cosmopolitan background which gives her insight into different communities, and insight she used in her writing, especially her blogs, for Magda is a self professed, ardent blogger. this New Year sees her off to Zanzibar for 3 months, and then she begins her Masters in human Rights. Look out for her website in the New Year.
