Writing is a healing.


Practice what you preach and so the saying goes.  And I can honestly say it has been achieved and furthermore it is what has led me to be where I am today.

Refreshingly, my arrival back in the UK, greeted me with the embodiment of who I used to be as lots of my past encounters reached out to me to share their joy of my return.  My latest adventure had taken me to Kuwait where I had to manage a new set of life skills learning how to adapt to living in the middle east.  So for the last year my previous vacancy to help others was now closed as I focused on family and career.

My previous well established routine of blogging and vlogging diminished and was replaced with building my own confidence in this new chapter of my life which I had no time to write about.  Instead I managed the odd picture and lots of whats apping, catching up with those that mattered at times when I wasn’t my strong and confident self.

Its been 6 months now that I’ve been back in the UK, and in that time, I not only revisited the past of myself, but I became a mom again for the third time, praise be to God.

I feel like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon as I spread my wings, as truly after almost a year of hibernation, I feel the passion of the writer emerge and scream out for the sound of those fingers tapping away on the keys.

Its been a year full of tears, happiness and joy, and I can’t wait to share the lessons, cause in every hardship there is a valuable lesson.  As I started so I will finish, meaning that on reflection of how and when my blogging journey began, it was with the same enquiry about life.  I chose to share my desire to change what was in my control and give the rest to God.  And here I am again, starting with the woman in the mirror, with stretch marks, scars and a really big smile.

Writing is my healing, so thank you to those who have stuck with me all the way 🙂  Your reading is my motivation

Peace and Love to you all!

She graduated with a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies eager to do right by my son. Around 2006 she embraced Islam and took on a calmer lifestyle getting married and focusing on being a mother alongside a business woman. Her marriage dissolved due to domestic Violence in 2009 and she retook a different path learning how to rebuild my self esteem and confidence. This journey allowed Shalina to share her growth via blogs and vlogs building a large following around the topic of abuse. Around 2011 her career as a Radio Presenter at Unity FM began. As her confidence grew, she decided to speak out in international media defending the rights of Women and Hijab. This lead her to successfully be present in Media covering newspaper, TV, Radio and Magazines in addition to have been in a successful documentary done about 6 Muslim women from around the world by a TV Production Team (NRL) from the Netherlands. This public platform allowed her to be vocal about various heart felt topics through Social media and other broadcasting opportunities. As a result Shalina now coaches women around the topic of Abuse Resolution. She continues to appear in mainstream media discussing various topics around Islam and women. She also runs her own business providing Inclusive Islamic Education for SEND Children. She is currently recording an album and writing a book, both due to be released in 2017 God Willing.
