ISIS mum ‘Towie-jihadi’ who become influencer tells of ‘mindset for success’

A British mum who was dubbed “Towie-jihadi” after running off to join ISIS has shared her “mindset for success”.

Tareena Shakil, the first British woman prosecuted for joining ISIS, is now a fashion influencer.

Rebranding herself as a glamorous style icon, Shakil now posts on TikTok as "That girl Tam Tam", under the handle @tareena.shakil, and has gained hundreds of Instagram followers from her fashion content, posting outfit snaps taken all over the world.

The British mother originally left Birmingham for Syria in 2014 with her 14-month-old son after signing up to terrorist group ISIS aged 26.

Abandoning her life as a healthcare worker to join the murderous terror organisation, Shakil lived in a house with other women waiting to be wed to foreign fighters.

Returning to the UK in 2015, she was sentenced to six years and undertook a de-radicalisation programme.

And she is now loving life as a TikTok influencer.

In her latest video, she was seen wearing a glam all-black sleek outfit, while claiming that she gets “everything I've ever wanted” – and had a jibe at critics of hers.

Captioning the video “motivation mindset for success” she said: “I will get everything I've ever wanted.

“Not because I'm lukcy, but because I don't quit.

“I explore all options and failure doesn't scare me.

“I also couldn't care less what people think.

“You should also have this mindset.”

Her influencer career has not exactly taken off, as she only has 3,947 followers on TikTok.

The only comment on the video tells her to “keep slaying”.

During Shakil's trial, Birmingham Crown Court were shown images of the ex-Jihadi showing off an AK-47, and pictures of herself and her toddler wearing ISIS-branded clothing.

She was jailed for four years for ISIS membership, having a further two years slapped on to her sentence for encouraging acts of terror, after encouraging others to join ISIS on social media.
