Rabbi

Hi, I'm MD Rabbi (he/him) and I'm your VP for Education and Deputy President for the 2021/22 academic year. I am an international student from Bangladesh studying Accounting and Finance at LSBU. I started my journey with the Students' Union in 2018 by being elected as an International Students' officer, Course Rep for three years in a row, and your VP Education in the 2020/21 academic year.

I am passionate about you, your voice, your campaign.

    DECOLONISE LSBU

    Current
    • VP Welfare

    What's the big idea?

    - Will launch "LSBU Belongs to us campaign" to create more awareness about decolonisation - More culturally competent and in-person "Out-of office hour" mental health and well-being support. - Will make sure LSBU campus facilities are cultural and religious friendly and non-discriminatory. -

    How will it benefit students?

    As Max(SU President) has mentioned about Awarding Gap, at LSBU, a full-time black student is 18% less likely to receive a 1st class degree than a white student. Also, LSBU has a diverse student body, where most of the students come from the BAME background. But in most of the degrees (not all), "White Supremacy" is still visible, whereas it is possible to reduce that colonialism. So I will continue to lobby with the university on decolonising the curriculum. Colonialism is severe during student life and in the job market, and in life after graduation. University is a place where a student can grow for the betterment. Therefore, we aim to create a space where one student can improve themselves regardless of any "pressure of cultural difference".
