Hannah Karim is still figuring things out when it comes to her identity – and it has been quite a journey for her so far.
The communications manager says that being mixed-race has never been a big part of her life – that is until she read some of the articles in this series and decided she wanted to get to know that part of herself.

Hannah’s mum is Scottish and my dad is from Sudan, but his parents were Egyptian and Turkish. So she describes herself as a ‘whole medley of everything.’ . . .
