Sami Ahmed

My name is Samiyaa Ahmed and I’m running to be your next BAME Officer. I am a British Bangladeshi Muslim studying Politics and Sociology, Aspiring to work in areas which strive for Human rights and increase the accessibility. I’m extremely passionate about enabling BAME students to thrive and take advantage of all the opportunities available at Newcastle University, whilst removing any barriers that BAME students typically face when accessing higher education. This is evident through my voluntary work at NEST, as well as my current roles as course representative and Student ambassador and participation in several societies such as Paksoc. Having personally faced barriers whilst accessing higher education and created campaigns to help overcome this, I will strive to create an environment in which inequalities and discriminatory behaviours are eliminated, as well as ensuring that BAME students feel represented and valued in campus
