My name is Lubaba Khalid. I was elected as the BAME officer then VP welfare where I witnessed the realities BAME students experience, holding the institution and the student union to account. I organised the first cross-campus Black History Month campaign which consisted of difficult conversations and shifted the university perspective on liberation. I introduced liberation networks, making sure that issues such as the Attainment gap were in the student union strategy, making sure that 65% of our student population is no longer sidelined. That we are truly representative and transparent and not afraid of those difficult conversations.
