About Fatima Khan

Fatima has been in the educational field most of her life, having lectured at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year levels in Chemistry at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

She now Tweets under the name of 'Multi faceted mum' about what she has learnt, accomplished, and experienced while raising her son.
