Seema Malhotra MP has been nominated as a parliamentary role model.
Seema said: "It means a lot to be told that you are seen as a role model and quite humbling also as you don't tend to see yourself in those terms. I remember moments on my personal journey when someone helped me move forward at a difficult crossroad, or helped me identify a path I could travel to reach my goal. Role models are important as symbols about where you are going and helping you map your own journey there. Being a role model and mentoring gives you a chance to share lessons from your life as well as remembering what others have done for you and paying it forward."
