Slogan:

If Anyone Can, It's Riham

 

Manifesto:

I’ve been highly engaged with the SU this year as a postgraduate student. While I’ve had an amazing experience, it’s evident that the SU needs to work harder to have an inclusive community.

 

I will lobby the school to:

 

BME EMPOWERMENT

Secure funding for resolving the attainment gap and tangibly give BME students resources to empower themselves.

Separate and recognize the differences between different BME communities at LSE.

 

POSTGRADUATE INVOLVEMENT

Higher attention towards postgraduate/PhD-only events.

Lobbying for postgraduates to have Wednesday afternoons off to improve participation in clubs and societies.

Connect postgraduates across departments to build the postgraduate community.

 

INCLUSIVE AU

More events such as LSE Boxing Club’s ‘Punch Like a Girl’ and the AU’s ‘Tackling Sexism and Homophobia in Rugby’, by providing funding and empowering clubs.

Provide counselling initiatives towards AU students.

 

MENTAL HEALTH

Lobby the school for the allocation of more resources towards mental health services on campus.

Integrate existing mental health services better and allocate more attention towards advertising them.

Initiatives to remove stigmatization towards mental health.
