Richard Brooks

Students’ Unions change lives. I know that, because it changed mine. I had the opportunity to be the first in my family to go to university and I found a home in my Students’ Union. That’s what Students’ Unions should be, and so should NUS. We know our national union needs to be built from the ground up, with decisions made for and by our diverse membership. We understand that activities are integral to who we are, and needs to be reflected by our movement, and we will offer support to our fantastic officers to deliver for our students.

Abdi-Aziz Suleiman

Born in Somalia, brought up from the age of 3 in Sheffield. I was a student of Philosophy when I was elected President of Sheffield University Students’ Union. My politics was created by seeing many of the good people who lived around me, with extraordinary talent who just happened to be born without privilege, live lives of quiet desperation and frustration. Education was the great liberator from despondency in many of their cases. When I made it to University, seeing people who dedicated their time to creating an education system for everyone made be proud of student unions.
