In 2012, Imran Sanaullah was presented the inaugural Naz Bokhari Award by Olympic taekwondo bronze medallist Lutalo Muhammad. Imran was successful in achieving a place at Westminster University to study Law.
Imran gave a speech in which he said:
“Winning the Naz Bokhari Award has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. At first when the award was being announced, I just thought it was just another award that I would not win. But when my name was said, I can truly say that it was the first in my life that I have ever been speechless. It has also been the best surprise that I have ever been given, for which I would like to thank Ernest Bevin College, my teachers and especially the Naz Legacy Foundation. I now look forward to doing bigger and better things in the future with the help of the Naz Legacy Foundation.”
Sadiq Khan, then MP for Tooting and former pupil of Naz Bokhari said:
“I am delighted that the inaugural Naz Bokhari Award has been presented to such a fantastic student. Imran Sanaullah is a worthy recipient, and I wish him every success with his future.”
Secretary of State for Education, Rt Hon Michael Gove MP said:
“You have a great deal to be proud of in your academic achievements to date. I am sure that this award represents only the first stage in a long and distinguished professional career.”
