Sahera Patel is a 43-year-old female British Muslim, teacher and public speaker, born in Bolton and now living in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Her parents were originally from India, offering her a diverse experience of two cultures. She has a passion for her faith and it is with this passion that she wrote her first book, the inspirational I?m not a Celebrity I am a Muslim. Sahera continues her writing with Unveiling Arabia, using the same cocktail of humour and relatable emotions to allow the reader to become part of the experience.

My long career in teaching has developed my confidence in presenting to and engaging an audience. Recent experience in talking to a variety of audiences has also helped me to approach new situations with confidence. The aim of both my books is to dispel misconceptions of my faith as well as to entertain and inspire. There are many moments of reflection which I hope would be a trigger for discussion and conversation during the talks.
