Dr Mustafa Javadi is an inspiration to everyone who knows him. Mustafa grew up in pre-revolutionary Iran and was forced to flee the country in 1979 when the Ayatollah came to power. Mustafa took this in his stride and studied Physics at Birmingham University, eventually obtaining a Doctorate. This is pretty amazing in itself, however Mustafa also had to simultaneously learn English, often recording lectures so he could translate them before commencing his studies. Now a fully fledged Doctor and armed with his new acquired British citizenship, Mustafa joined the UK nuclear industry in the 1980s and worked his way up the ladder, via various power stations across the country, to his current position as the head of Nuclear Safety at Sizewell B Power Station. This alone shows how driven Mustafa is, but there`s more! He also undertakes various challenges for charity and over the past 3-4 years alone (bearing in mind he is 61 now!) has completed four marathons for charity, cycled from Suffolk to Cardiff, ran umpteen shorter local half-marathons. He also completed John-o-Groats to Lands End cycle ride, 950 miles in 9 days collecting more than £5000 sponsorship for EDF Paralympics GB. Mustafa has been doing charity work since he was 22. I`ve known Mustafa for nearly 20 years now and he has always encouraged me to further myself, both in the nuclear industry and in everyday life. I have only scraped the surface as far as Mustafa`s achievements; however, I truly believe that Mustafa would make a fine candidate to be an Olympic torchbearer.
