Candidates for National President

Momin Saqib
Leadership, Transformation and Sucess

Being the first non-European international student to be elected as the President of King’s College London SU in 144 years, I have worked relentlessly to make a positive impact for our student body. I firmly believe that the NUS is a great institution with an even greater unleashed potential. Unfortunately due to the internal political turmoil that grips, it has not been able to work effectively for its membership. NUS needs to be transformed to be in line with Students’ views and this can only be done through a change in leadership to achieve the success it deserves.

Sahaya James
National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts

I’m a socialist feminist and an activist through the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, a democratic activist network fighting for free education. For too long, our national union has been detached and isolated from the activists on the ground who have the real capacity to reshape education and society. I’m standing to be national president because we need to radically overhaul NUS, democratising our structures in order to become a serious campaigning force - bold in its vision for a free and liberated education and is prepared to fight for it.

Shakira Martin
Re-elect Shakira: Time To Get Real

I have been humbled and honoured to be your National President for the last 8 months. I have always been honest about my story, the journey that education took me on and the huge changes we all want to see in our education system. 

I was elected to listen, learn and lead; now it's time to get real about what that means both for all forms of education, and what it means for NUS.

Candidates for Vice President (Further Education)

Emily Ann Chapman
#FEISHERETOSTAY

When you elected me as your Vice President Further Education, I made a promise to get the FE and college Voice loud and proud, both in NUS and across the sector. That is exactly what I have been doing since.

We are 65% of this student movement and now is the time to show how AMAZING we are. We as FE and Colleges are not just the building's that do anything other than University Education. We are places that CHANGE and SAVE LIVES.

RE-Elect me, Emily YOUR VPFE and help me continue to say #FEISHERETOSTAY!!

Neal Black
For a Strong FE voice

I came back to college as a mature student parent aware of the difficult decisions that many college students make daily, to balance family life & their studies.

I am passionate about education, I believe it’s a transformative experience, our colleges are rooted in communities and give people a second chance. Speaking of communities, I have invested a lot of my free time in giving back to mine, taking on roles in Ormiston community council & the wider local area partnership group, and as a member of the children’s hearing panel helping to give a voice to young people.

Candidates for Vice President (Higher Education)

Amatey Doku
Let's keep winning for students

It’s been a huge privilege to be the VPHE and Deputy President for NUS at such an important time for the Higher Education Sector over the last year.

But with Brexit, funding crises, chaotic politics and persisting disparities in Higher Education, the need for leadership is more important than ever before.

There is still so much more to do and with your support we can continue to win for students.

Ana Oppenheim
National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts

I’m a postgraduate student, former sabbatical officer and current representative of the International Students’ Campaign on NUS NEC. I’m also a socialist feminist and a proud Labour Party activist. For years, I’ve campaigned against tuition fees and campus cuts, and for workers’ and migrants’ rights.

I’m standing because NUS should be building on the enthusiasm for free education that saw millions of students voting for it last year. I’m the candidate who will develop and campaign for our vision of a debt-free, accessible, democratic and liberated education, and support local campaigns on campuses across the country.

Zamzam Ibrahim
Zamzam for VP Soc & Cit!

I want to lead a Society & Citizenship Zone that will always defend students like me that will fight for a cohesive multicultural and just society.

I’m running to be your VP Society and Citizenship, because I want an NUS that shapes an inclusive and progressive society, an NUS that supports and unites all students, and an NUS that actually makes concrete change.

Candidates for Vice President (Union Development)

Ali Milani
Connecting NUS to students

In April, I stood on stage at national conference and presented a vision of a Union Development radically different from years gone by. I spoke of a need to bring our movement together, develop activists locally and connect our National Union with students at grassroots. Several months into our journey, we are on an incredible path to building something special.

I'm standing for re-election because I believe now is not the time to abandon our vision. We’re just getting started. If we build a National Union that believes in connecting students with NUS - we will become an unstoppable force.

Jess Levy
No to Mess, Vote for Jess

Hi Delegate,
I’m Jessica Levy, The Representation and Resources Officer at Birmingham Guild of Students.

I’ve noticed being a part of NUS is not something that my students back on my campus care about…. …I’m going to work with you to change this. Student Unions, can change lives, mine did, it gave opportunities to help me realise what I could achieve. Union Development zone can champion work that unions do and more importantly help push it forward.

I will be the Vice President of Union Development that puts the Zone in our memberships Unions and not on your Twitter feed.

Candidates for Vice President (Welfare)

Eva Crossan Jory
#Eva4VPWelfare

The Welfare Zone must act now - it must be transformative. Welfare must centre around care and collective action against cuts and oppression.

At Goldsmiths, we have been making ground-breaking work on these issues - improving our counselling service, fighting for tenants rights and creating institutional policy against sexual harassment. We urgently need a transformative Welfare Zone which amplifies our collective voice.

Izzy Lenga
Re-elect Izzy for VP Welfare

As your VP Welfare this year, I have not wasted a minute on delivering my promises - to transform NUS’ Welfare work so that it's focused to deliver on the issues that matter to students.

But the work’s not complete. Our support services are still under attack, hate crimes are spiralling on our campuses, mental health services are underfunded and students are living in squalor yet can’t meet their sky-high rent payments.

Re-elect me to finish the job - securing new standards and investment in support services, fighting campaigns to bring together a united, fighting and winning Welfare campaign.
