Saddiqur was elected in March 2018 as Postgraduate Students’ Officer 2018-19.

Take a look at Saddiqur’s manifesto

Give three words to describe yourself:

Decisive. Dynamic. Dependable.

What did you get involved with whilst at UCL?

This is my first year in UCL and since enrolling I have been an Academic Representative as well as a Trustee of the Union which has allowed me to be involved in both small and large-scale changes within my department and university.

What is/was your degree?

Applied Analytical Chemistry MSc

What made you want to stand for office?

My friend inspired me to run and expressed that I had the creativity and drive to make lasting positive change to tens of thousands of students.

Tell us a ‘fun fact’ or something that not many people know about you:

I have a few.

I am a fully qualified bus-driver and there is a possibility that you hopped on my bus last summer.

I was probably the tallest person ever (at 6ft 1”) to be selected as a tennis ball-boy when I held the position at the 2012 London Paralympics.

My family refer to me as an excavator because I have unusually large hands and food does not go to waste on my watch. I am proud of this.
