“Sarwat is objective, nuanced and brave. She is unafraid to tackle difficult issues head on and does so in an open, inclusive and thoughtful manner so as to provoke thought; enabling people to address issues by looking at them in ways that they had perhaps not previously considered. I have found her to be a much needed critical friend."
