Nafisa says:

"Post-graduation I worked for UCL Innovation & Enterprise, running programmes to help students start their big idea, or alternatively to learn skills through entrepreneurial programmes. Because of my own entrepreneurial journey throughout UCL I am passionate about entrepreneurship being a great tool for personal and professional development.

I then founded my own start-up, Amaliah. We curate the best in modest fashion from well-known high street retailers, independent fashion brands and the best of what bloggers are wearing on Instagram. It's incredible that we have been able to hire a team and scale up just a year after graduating. UCL really helped to nurture my idea and confidence in being able to do it."
