We are huge Great British Bake Off fans here at AWMB and felt compelled to have the finalist this season as one of our AWMBinspirations!
Nadiya Hussain is 30 and a wife and mum to three children. Her family originate from Bangladesh. We have loved watching Nadiya on the show with her quick wit and charm she has proven herself to be a huge hit!
Nadiya has been open in her interviews about her concerns around appearing on the show as a hijab wearing Muslim woman “I was a bit nervous that perhaps people would look at me, a Muslim in a headscarf, and wonder if I could bake. I hope that week by week people have realised that I can bake – and just because I’m not a stereotypical British person, it doesn’t mean that I am not into bunting, cake and tea. I’m just as British as anyone else, and I hope I have proved that.” (Radio Times) Yes you have Nadiya!
We know many women have been inspired by Nadiya’s authenticity and passion…good luck for the final Nadiya from us!
