The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Since winning ‘The Great British Bake Off’ in 2015, Nadiya Hussain has written and presented her way to national treasure status in record time. Her refusal to be pigeon-holed has been as striking as her willingness to speak out – including openly discussing her lifelong struggle with a panic disorder.

Ahead of the publication of her first children’s picture book, ‘My Monster and Me’, Nadiya took to the stage to open the Children's Media Conference on Tuesday 2nd July 2019, and face down the monsters that surround us all: mental health, intolerance, inequality… as she considers what we can all do to inspire young people to feel truly limitless.

Stream a video of Nadiya's keynote below.

The Keynote begins with a presentation by Changemaker Noga Levy-Rapoport.
