understanding and relating to issues/concerns
of the international student community at SOAS.
I think it’s fundamental that the international
ofﬁcer should have ‘walked in the same shoes’
as those he/she is representing, as this is the
only way to provide effective representation.
Furthermore, in the past throughout my
academic life I have demonstrated that I’m
conﬁdent, posses the natural ability to lead and
to give a voice to the unrepresented through
being in positions in which I was required to do
so. So, it’s vital that an ofﬁcer has delivered in
the past and I will continue delivering.
Despite being in such an amazing city, there are times where we need emotional
support. A mixture of being home sick, work load and adjusting to a new place can be
extremely difﬁcult especially when you’re from another country. Therefore, I hope to liaise
with more students who need that support and encourage students to make use of
emotional help. At times it may feel like you are alone, however this shouldn't be the
We’re stronger and better with diversity. With SOAS being a melting pot for different
cultures, ethnicities & races, this should be celebrated and embraced in and around
SOAS. Therefore, international students should feel more welcome into joining socials,
societies and events. This way we learn from each other and accept one another.
Therefore, I aim to make sure events are catering for everyone i.e. Christmas dinner but
with a dish from each country.
Despite a variety of societies that cater for different groups and interests, I strongly
believe in hosting more targeted events at speciﬁc groups. For example some
international students do not drink, due to this many miss out on some form of nightlife.
Therefore, I would host alcohol free nights as some people just want to enjoy the music
Some international students do not know how to fully express their concerns or believe
their is no efﬁcient way to do so. Therefore, I aim to be more pro-active in identifying and
rectifying problems. Why should students have to come to us, when we can go to them?
Therefore, I intend on holding drop-in sessions as well as going around on campus and
discussing with students face to face.
