Since being at Liverpool John Moores University for 2 years I have actively tried to engage myself and other BAME students to be proactive in their communities. I was on the committee of the Afro Caribbean Society in 19/20, with the aim to have career events and mental health focus groups and overall have conversations that are not prevalent in the black community. However, I believe I can help more people as BAME Part-Time Officer. Working with the previous BAME officer, I was able to explore my passion not only for equality but for equity and would be proud to continue the amazing work she started.
My aims as BAME Part-Time Officer are:
Work with the student union to build a strong relationship between the university and BAME students.
Have a weekly podcast where students will rotate talking about their experiences to remind people they are not alone.
Have career events to encourage students to go into careers where they might be a minority and have BAME LJMU alumni inspire students.
Continue the BAME Student Network and create a comfortable and safe environment.
As BAME Part-Time Officer I chair the BAME Student Network, for more information about the network or to join please click here.
