The Awards, founded by Pinky Lilani CBE DL in 1999, celebrate multicultural Britain and the contribution of diverse cultures and talents to UK society. The awards play a key role in redefining the contribution of Asian women; and informing a new, positive, pro-diversity debate.

Freeha said: “It was so inspiring to attend Asian Woman of Achievement Awards in London earlier this week. I was amazed to meet great women who paved their way to success against all odds. Each one of them was different, but one thing that we all had in common was hard work and resilience.

“Whilst I was not the winner, I feel honoured to be a finalist, for me it wasn’t about winning more about being in a room with women having extraordinary talent and inspirational stories.

“Thanks to Pinky Lilani and her team for developing this prestigious platform which recognises the accomplishments of Asian women.”
