Fawziyyah Ahmed

We are incredibly lucky to have such a diverse community within the student population, with this diversity comes the power to make a change within our University; we can make a change on what joins us together and a good example of this is the Wellbeing of students. I am Fawziyyah Ahmed, an MSc International Business Student and I would like to be your next VP Wellbeing and Diversity. During my time at the University, I have engaged with different parts of the Student Union, I have been Vice-chair of the Islamic society, as well as a part-time faith and belief officer in the Student Union, I am currently chair of the Nigerian Student Society, all of which has equipped me with the relevant experience, knowledge and skills needed to represent you.

I intend to:

Make Wellbeing forums as regular as sports and society forums, this would create a platform that would break the stigma surrounding mental health, and give students the opportunity to have their voices heard and for students to give feedback on student support services.

Work alongside the University Equality and Diversity team to champion equality and diversity using promotional videos and posters to tackle issues relating to racism, islamophobia, homophobia, or any other form of prejudice thus making campus a welcoming environment for all.

Work alongside the Student Support Services to orientate international students to be knowledgeable about mental health, thereby enabling them to support themselves as well as their peers. Using the welcome week and social media as a platform to engage the students.

This is your chance to make a change using your voice!
