Hi wonderful individual!
I’m Marwan, a second year Law & Politics Undergraduate Student.
As a dreamer, because of prejudices I’ve experienced & witnessed, I aspire to become a Criminal or International Public Lawyer. With the vision of developing an all-inclusive, well-contextualised legal system that aids disadvantaged sufferers, while interacting with trauma survivors, as a survivor myself, because I hear us.
VP of BAME Law Society during its founding year. I learned about communications channels of relevant stakeholders in the University & wider community regarding taking action on student matters. I also understood challenges faced by BAME students in our communities.
Manager of The Macmillan Forum. I learnt to listen to, understand & appreciate diverse perspectives. I’m working on projects that use forums as a medium for education & discussion on interdisciplinary matters through intersectional perspectives.
Spent pandemic founding youth initiatives promoting youth synergy for shared goals internationally.
Served as Director-General at an NGO allowing accessible debates to students globally.
Identity & diversity are unique & enriching parts of one’s traits. Therefore discrimination & marginalisation of any form, be it racial or ethnic is blatantly unnaccpetable & cannot be tolerated.
As a Muslim, Arab, Omani, International student who was raised in a large extended family with diverse skintones & nationalities, I believe that acceptance & respect for all is a foundatinoal principle that we must firmly uphold.
So, in light of the recent racial & ethnically directed violence & discrimination I belive that students should feel safe, supported & heard on campus. Because that is our right & liberty.
If elected, I pledge to always stand up, listen to & represent you & our diverse communities, whether I identify as part of them or not.
