Cover to Cover Ep 15 with Yassmin Abdel-Magied23 Jun 16

At 21, Yassmin found herself working on a remote Australian oil and gas rig; she was the only woman and certainly the only Sudanese-Egyptian-Australian background Muslim woman. With her hijab quickly christened a 'tea cosy' there could not be a more unlikely place on earth for a young Muslim woman to want to be. This is the story of how she got there, where she is going, and how she wants the world to change.
In 2007 she was named Young Australian Muslim of the Year and in 2010 Young Queenslander of the Year. In 2011 Yassmin graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and in 2012 she was named Young Leader of the Year in the Australian Financial Review and Westpac's inaugural 100 Women of Influence Awards as well as an InStyle cultural leader and a Marie Claire woman of the future.
Yassmin has now been awarded Youth of the Year in the Australian Muslim Achievement Awards.

"Yassmin's story: Who do you think I am?" was published by Random House Australia in 2016.  In this episode of Cover to Cover, Yassmin discusses her journey to becoming a debut published author at the age of 25.
