Khadra Mohamed
As a first generation student myself, I am well versed in the unique challenges facing students and with this knowledge, I hope to create a successful strategy to empower more first generation students at UCL. In the current circumstances, inequalities remain present and through this role I aim to ensure all first generation events are accessible, interactive - no matter where you are. I am passionate about eradicating long standing inequalities and will endeavor to reduce barriers by being responsive and proactive to ensure every first generation student receives the support they deserve.

My priorities include ensuring we secure partnerships with more organisations that are committed to increasing representation and utilizing our first generation alumni network to create an inclusive and empowering community from which we can learn from. This will maximize first generation students' exposure to different career pathways and ensure any misconceptions held are shattered.

First generation students often face immense barriers and with the pandemic, online learning and more - inequalities have continued to grow and with my own experiences and knowledge of social mobility I aim to make sure no first generation student is left behind. As a campus ambassador of In State - a student led charity aiming to increase social mobility, this role would provide me with an integral position in ensuring and maintaining inclusive access for UCL first generation students.

As an individual who gained my place at university through an access offer and coming from an underrepresented background, I am well aware of the often invisible barriers that first generation students face. I believe that the higher education setting need to do more to bridge the gap for those who are underprivileged, therefore in this role I will actively insure that this is achieved. My priorities, if elected, will be to provide the essential extra support needed for first generation students at UCL through online workshops geared at providing academic support along with informal gatherings with experts in this area. I will also aim to promote a dialogue across year groups for additional support. My passion surrounding widening participation comes from first hand experience and my strong belief that education should be meritocratic. I believe that widening participation is key in diversifying the higher education setting and in the longer-term, society. I will carry this enthusiasm with me I this role, if elected.
