Mia Ayliffe-Chung is the 21-year-old British backpacker who was stabbed to death in Australia last Tuesday at the hostel she was staying in. 

Mia, from Wirksworth in Derbyshire, was working on a farm in Queensland in order to fulfil requirements for her Australian visa. 

In the coming week, Mia’s mother, Rosie Ayliffe, will write a daily blog in The Independent as she prepares to travel to Australia and collect her daughter’s ashes. 

Here, in her own words, she talks about grief, how she is coming to terms with her loss, and the "nonsense" that has been written about Mia’s death and attempts to link it to Islam. 

We will aim to update this blog as it is published.
