22-year-old Aaminah Khan has worked as part of the management team at Specsavers in Slough for over a year.
Interest in optics from a young age
Having studied her BSc in Optometry at City University London, Aaminah started out her career as an optical assistant four years ago. She said: ‘I’ve always been interested in having a career in optics ever since my sister was diagnosed with amblyopia, a condition commonly known as lazy eye that occurs when the eye and brain don’t function together properly.
'I’ve been with Specsavers for four years now and have worked my way up to retail manager at the store. That’s one of the great things about working for Specsavers – there are so many opportunities and I’ve managed to progress my career in a short space of time.’
Aaminah lives in Staines-Upon-Thames with her dad and in her spare time she enjoys cooking, socialising, attending music concerts, fashion and shopping.
