Banana Chat features inspirational people, one of which is Abed Ahmed

by Banana Crumble | May 21, 2018

Every week we do a Banana Chat feature where we pose a series of questions to someone we think has been inspirational. In our series of chats we have interviewed international sports people, actors, fitness instructors, business people, teachers, university students, bloggers, an author, fundraisers and many more.

Many of these people are just ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. Each of our featured people have done something amazing and we are really proud when we hear that one of these people have been recognised for something really special.

Abed Ahmed is a teacher from Birmingham who we have interviewed and featured over the last few months since we started to feature inspirational people. If you haven’t read any of our articles before then Abed is a teacher that has a stammer. He was born and brought up in a tough area of Birmingham and has inspired children at his school who also stammer.

We try and keep in touch with our inspirational people and last week we heard from Abed once again. He has been nominated for Birmingham’s 30 under 30 awards. To read more about this click here.

Not only that he has also been nominated in the TES school awards for 2018 in the New Teacher of the year award. To read more about this click here. Just being nominated for an award is a great achievement. The actual awards ceremony is to be held on June 22nd at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel. This year it is a particularly important ceremony as it is the 10th anniversary of the awards.

Congratulations from us all here at Banana Crumble and we will be keeping everything crossed for you at at the actual awards ceremony. We look forward to hearing more about his experience and how great it is that you have been recognised for your inspirational role at your school.

If you know of anyone that you feel has been inspirational or you would like to take part in one of our Banana Chat features then please email us at
