Being able to make friends and contacts which made my life easy and friendly
Who are you currently working for and what is your job title?
The University of Bradford Union of Students, I have been the Union Secretary and Treasurer since June 2009
How has your career developed since leaving the University of Bradford?
Being elected by the student population to run the Union was an excellent opportunity to pay back their support to me when I was in hardship during being trapped in my home country Palestine, Gaza Strip, and unable to continue my studies but with the support I received from students and University management I was able to be reunited with my friends and I was able to graduate successfully.
Taking part in the Union’s day to day activities I developed my management skills, communication skills and am able to advocate for the rights of students.
What is the best thing about what you are doing now?
To be appreciated and looked after by my fellow students and new personal contacts with the University. Recently I have been appointed as the University Muslim faith advisor.
