Yasmine AbdelHey! I’m a 1st Year Psychology student and I’d love to have your vote!
I want to represent race equality as I believe that university should be an environment which promotes equal opportunities and respect for the diverse cultural values, traditions and perspectives that contributes to the intellectual exchange of ideas within campus.

MY EXPERIENCE:

  • Growing up in a Portuguese and Egyptian household, I have developed an understanding of different cultural viewpoints and concerns from personal experience.
  • As the Fundraiser Convenor for the African Caribbean Society, I organise fundraising events to raise awareness of issues and campaigns concerning various cultural matters in addition to social events. I also work collectively with all members of the society to promote membership to students of all ethnicity to support cohesion.

IF ELECTED I WILL:

  • Take action against any form of racism on campus.
  • Be dedicated to working with clubs/societies to represent their concerns about racial issues.
  • Support campaigns that promote race equality and cohesion or raise awareness about racial discrimination.
  • Work with the University to affect change regarding race equality.
