For someone of this background, politically on the left and a committed anti-racist, to find a voice and space in the mainstream media has been challenging and rewarding. She is also a respected pundit, radio and television broadcaster and appears on key political and cultural programmes. Yasmin is a regular columnist on the I newspaper as well as the Sunday Times Magazine.
