Book Review - Yassmin's Story: Who Do You Think I Am? (Penguin Random House)

In this exuberant memoir, 24-year-old Yassmin introduces herself as a ‘Muslim woman, founder of a youth-led organisation, former race car Team Principal, Sudanese-born member of the Arab-African diaspora, Queenslander, boxer’, a doer and thinker whose aim and ability is to be ‘useful’. Yassmin has packed more into her young life than most of us manage in a lifetime, and already achieved a formidable national and international public profile. The book is more than a story of growing up and migrant achievement: it’s funny, socially and culturally insightful and demonstrates a mature level of self-awareness. And it’s a terrific read.
