Finding My Voice
Finding My Voice
'A fascinating from-the-heart memoir' Nigel Slater
'A revelatory honest read' Red magazine
FUNNY, HEART-WRENCHING, GENEROUS AND TRUE, IN FINDING MY VOICE NADIYA HUSSAIN SHARES THE UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES AND EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE MADE HER THE WOMAN SHE IS TODAY.
'I am writing this for everyone who was told no. 'No, you are not rich enough. No, that is not credible. No, you can't. No, you won't. No, you are not allowed. No, that is not appropriate.
I was told, "No, you do not belong."
Finally, I am saying, "Yes, I do."'
From the moment Nadiya Hussain was born, she has been questioning her role in life. But the irony is, she never wanted to be a trailblazer. She just wanted to follow a 'normal' path. But life kept telling her 'you can't'.
And so she found her own way, beyond anything she dared to dream . . .
In this wise, witty, open-hearted book, Nadiya lets us into her life and, for the first time, shares the memories and experiences that have shaped her into the woman and role-model that she is today, alongside her personal recipes and the stories they tell.
'We all have a voice. Yours might be loud and strong, or quiet yet insistent. I have always tried to use mine for the right reasons.'
After winning 2015's Great British Bake Off, Nadiya Hussain has gone on to capture the hearts of the nation.
A columnist for The Times, Nadiya has also presented many shows for the BBC including The Chronicles of Nadiya, Nadiya's Asian Odyssey, Nadiya's British Food Adventure, Nadiya's Family Favourites and her latest Nadiya's Time to Eat.
Her cookery books include, Nadiya's Kitchen, Nadiya's British Food Adventure, Nadiya's Family Favourite and Time To Eat. Her three books in the bestselling Bake Me A Story series, one of which was shortlisted for a British Book Award, are published by Hachette Children's Group, as well as her first picture book for younger readers, My Monster and Me.
Born in Luton to British-Bangladeshi parents, Nadiya now lives in Milton Keynes with her husband, Abdal, and their three children.
