Hasina joined FOCUS in January 2020, volunteering on the START programme. In June that year, she became part of the FOCUS staff team.
Prior to her journey to become a youth worker, she graduated as a biomedical scientist at St Georges University of London in 2002. Hasina started to volunteer with the Leicester City Council youth offending team as a panel member and realised this was her passion. She changed her career path, and graduated with an MA in childhood and youth at The Open University.

“I finally feel fulfilled! It took a while with patience and perseverance – though I realised you are never too old to follow your dreams. I am now following my passion: supporting young people, helping them on their journey to achieve their goals, and making a difference to their lives. This means a lot to me. I am very humbled to be working alongside an amazing supportive team, and a fantastic organisation I’m privileged to be a part of.”
