A few more words from Nabila:
Hi! I'm Nabz Pat and for the past year, I've been making comedy videos on YouTube.
If there's one saying I live by, it's that - laughter truly is the the best medicine. I've seen it first hand with loved ones who've found great joy and relief from a good old laugh!
Nothing beats the excitement of creatively discovering humour in serious issues - whether it's the absurdities of bigotry or even everyday relatable matters.
And since making comedy videos, I've done stand up comedy too! People say stand-up is as scary as jumping out of an aeroplane. But I'd rather not crash land with my jokes, so I'm too busy plotting my next punchline than being fearful.
