Laila was killed in 2007 in a road traffic collision caused by a drunk driver, at the tender age of 23. She was a unique young woman full of life, love, humour and understanding. Most importantly she had an immense passion for helping less fortunate and less able than her. Thus it only seems right that a Foundation in her name doing such work would be the best way to keep her alive.
Laila was born and had her primary education in Zahedan, Iran. She came to London with her parents when she was 11, and attended Alperton Community School and Rustam Iranian School in North West London before completing her further education in Roehampton University, where she gained a Bsc in Psychology.
She married in August 2005 and received an acceptance to complete a doctorate at both the University of East London and Roe Hampton University just a few days after her death.
During the last years of her life, Laila worked for the Priory Hospital, a centre specialist for psychiatric people based in Hemel Hampstead. At the time of the accident she was working as an assistant teacher for autistic children in Northway School in Mill Hill, London.
