On Tuesday 22nd January 2013, at the House of Commons, the Co-Founder of Restless Beings Rahima Begum was recognised in the British Bangladeshi Power 100. The BBPower100 is an event which celebrates leading British Bangladeshi figures who are helping shape the future of Britain with their ideas and talent, whilst recognising their success in a wide range of fields.
Rahima was recognised under the 'Emerging Influence' category for her tireless work and utter devotion not only to her work within Restless Beings but also her work across the community from co-hosting and speaking at women's rights events, championing arts and networking across the British Bangladeshi community, alongside work with local and national media. As an inspirational figure Rahima is a highly sought after panel expert, and has lectured on human rights both domestically and internationally. Her work leading Restless Beings support for the persecuted Rohingya community in Myanmar as well as women's rights in Kyrgyzstan received particular praise.
