I started my UCLan journey in 2018 as a Biomedical Sciences undergraduate student and concluded my degree in 2021. I became involved with the Students’ Union initially as the Social Secretary for the Islamic Society and the BAME Student Ambassadors in my 2nd year. In my final year I was elected School President for the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. In my time in this role, I was involved in the Student Voice Project via the Unitu pilot and was a member of the Black Lives Matter Student Working Group centred around how the University can diversify the curriculum and tackle the BAME Awarding Gap.
My time in these roles helped harness my interpersonal skills and help better the student experience at UCLan. In my spare time, I enjoy binge watching a good TV series and heading out with my camera to take pictures.
