Samira Abdalla
As the Secretary of the Students’ Union BME Network, Treasurer of the Somali Society and the co-founder of the Environmental Justice Project, I understand the need for strong and reliable leadership. I will continue to build upon the work of my predecessors in fighting racism and discrimination on campus. This includes the continuation of the Decolonise Movement, as well as various other liberation campaigns throughout the year. I wish to oversee the implementation of safe and inclusive spaces, particularly for BME women. This includes support groups, self-care workshops and chilled sports sessions. In bridging the attainment gap, I will oversee the creation of writing skills workshops, academic networking opportunities, as well as an induction to study life. I will hold regular sessions on navigating the Students’ Disability Services, Extenuating Circumstances and Bursaries. As your BME Officer, I promise to fight for the voice and rights of all the students that I am elected to represent.
