MEHREEN BAIG IS A PRESENTER, ACTIVIST AND BLOGGER WHO IS ON A MISSION TO GIVE A VOICE TO YOUNG BRITISH ASIAN WOMEN.
Mehreen’s writing has often covered subjects surrounding Asian women that have been considered taboo. As a result she has featured in coverage by the BBC, The Telegraph and The Observer. Mehreen is currently appearing in Walks of Life (BBC1) and Pilgrimage: The Road To Rome (BBC Two) alongside a group of well-known personalities, covering the Italian section of the Via Francigena.
In 2016 Mehreen took part in BBC 2’s BAFTA winning two-part documentary Muslims Like Us, which followed a diverse group of Muslims living together in a house. On the back of her breakthrough appearance in that programme, Mehreen was widely interviewed and was invited to speak at conferences around the world including The Women’s Economic Forum in New Delhi. She also gave a passionate speech when collecting the award for Reality & Constructed Factual at the 2017 BAFTA Awards.
Mehreen was part of the presenting team for Sunday Morning Live (BBC 1) and has also presented segments for The One Show (BBC 1). She has presented two documentaries for BBC2: Islam Women and Me and Lost Boys? What’s Going Wrong For Asian Men (Swan Films). In 2018 Mehreen completed filming for Pilgrimage: The Road To Rome which will air on BBC Two later this year.
Mehreen previously worked as an English teacher in a North London secondary school since graduating from the Institute of Education and was the youngest member of staff to be promoted to a senior role within her first five years. She is passionate about education and empowering young women.
