Zehra Gokal
Salaam Alaikum everyone! My name is Zehra Gokal and I’d love to have the honour of serving you as ABSoc President this year. As last year’s social media officer, I’ve seen first-hand all the hard work and effort put in to progressing the society despite restrictions and the ongoing pandemic. I believe this year especially, it’s crucial to maintain the momentum we’ve gained into next year as things (hopefully) start opening up InshaAllah! :)

Not only do I wish to carry on some of the amazing campaigns and collaborations that were started last year, but the goal is to translate them into more interactive, in-person events. I want to make sure that ABSoc is not only an academic and spiritual hub but a social one as well, with a lot of us deprived of seeing others being locked down at home. I want to really make everyone feel welcome and part of the ABSoc family so they can learn, grow (academically and spiritually) and benefit as much as they can from our events and being part of our ABSoc. I’ve also got some new ideas in mind to facilitate this growth which I’d love to introduce as President!

I have learnt an immense amount from the ABSoc family around me this past year, and it would be my pleasure and duty to continue their efforts and serve the community as best I can, doing for someone else what they did for me.
