Rashida did her postgraduate studies in Paediatrics and Paediatric Neurology in Toronto and had a successful consulting practice there for many years. Moving to London has given Rashida the opportunity to develop her creative and artistic side. In recent years she has been exploring Identity through photography and mixed media, drawing on her personal experiences of moving between three continents, three cities, and different cultures. Added to the mix are the influences from science, medicine, religion, spirituality and life experiences.
