I studied Law (LLB) for my undergrad at City, then I decided to go on to studying the BPTC LLM course at City aswell. I really enjoyed the LLB, especially modules such as Immigration law, Islamic law and International Human Rights law as this is where my passion lies. However, the BPTC, although difficult and stressful, was more enjoyable and satisfying, and is a step towards my career goal in becoming a Barrister.
Oh, where do I start? The short answer is, I’m British. But I take pride in all my different backgrounds. I’m also Arab and African with parents from Tunisia and Sudan.
University for me is more than just to get a degree. Activism is a huge part of me, and there is no better place to get involved in activism than Students’ Unions. I got involved during my undergrad years when I helped set up a society then went on to become its President. From this I became more aware of the opportunities the SU provides and ran in different elections, from running for National Union of Students’ delegate, to Council Chair, and finally, running in the leadership elections for the position of VP Community and Wellbeing.
Simply put, everything. City is a unique institution with so much potential in the student body. I loved being able to work with so many students and members of staff across the years for a shared common goal and bringing about the community feel that we all need.
The main corridor. May not be an answer people would give, but I love walking across the main corridor and just seeing students. I’ve spent so many hours there speaking to students about things I’m passionate about. The main corridor has always witnessed some of my wildest University experiences, but that’s for another time.
