Name: Haleemah Patel
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Leicester
Campaign: To encourage others to take a stand against hate crime

I wear a niqab and have experienced hate crime as a result.

I’ve had people shout things at me and I’ve even had someone try to pull off my veil. It makes me feel vulnerable.


I don’t believe that anyone should be subjected to this sort of abuse, whether it’s based on religion, sexuality or disability.


People should stick together and stand up to hate crime when they see it happening.


We shouldn’t let it go unchallenged.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Alex Chew

Ammarah Omerjee

Attiyyah Omerjee

Charlotte Richardson

Millie Kirk

Stevie-Jade Hardy, University of Leicester
