A Liberal Democrat since 2003, Munira feels strongly about the policies and qualities her party instils. She also has a team of 5 staff that deals with debates, communication and assists her in the office.  She says, “ I wouldn't be an MP without them.” Munira hasn't had a usual journey as MP as she was only elected in 2019 and was scheduled to visit schools as of March last year (which didn't happen due to Covid-19.) Her most exciting moment as MP was when she stepped foot in the chamber. As lock down eases she says she has only experienced 2-3 months of normality in her role as MP. Her typical work week pans out like this: to start the week she's in our constituency, and she then goes out of constituency to either work or campaign.


As she doesn't get much spare time, she spends her free time doing cooking, running and playing with her children (one is 2 and the other is 6). Ever since she was a child, Munira wanted to become a teacher but as she grew up she was more into politics. In university, a thought crossed her mind and she visioned herself as a politician. She stated, ' It would be really cool to be an MP.'  Munira took an A-level in politics during her late teens. Her friend suggested that instead of shouting at the TV, she should get involved . . . and that's when her career took flight. 

Munira admires Barack Obama , who was the first ever black president of the USA, and the hope and change he offered. She commented that she wants a 50/50 split of female and male MPs. Someone from the U.K. she looks up to is Shirley Williams - who she claims was a really inspirational woman.


We asked what she thought made good primary school qualities and she replied, "Students well-being is key to a good school, but I also think academic success is vital!'
