‘Voices gives myself and other British Muslims our voices back. Voices is a new platform, for British Muslims to air their stories, feelings, and experiences.
— Asif Khan

 

Are you a young Muslim? We would love to hear from you!

Get in touch if you have a real-life experience or story you would like to share. It may be positive, negative, funny, poetic, angry, or sad.... Anything goes! 

Your Story

This is for you to write about something that is important to you and you want to share.

We think that too much of the time, people in British society don’t get to hear the personal stories and experiences of young Muslims.

With these stories, we hope to challenge negative perceptions that people might have.

Share your story and we will use the power of acting to tell it to as wide an audience as possible.

Follow the link below to see some example stories, including the text version of 'Flight.'
