Haq Ismail: Trying to Fit In
Here Haq describes the public school culture at his school.
TranscriptI didn’t know it at the time, but thinking back, yeah it was very much of a sort of public school type education and a kid coming from a working class background. A lot of the kids there had wealthy parents and my parents were not. And also I was pretty much one of the only Asian kids, there was a few black kids but the majority were white so I was working class, Asian, you know, Muslim, trying to fit into this public school, wealthy, you know, aristocracy kind of school.
