Bringing Communities Together

VOTE FOR DARIUS NASIMI, VOTE FOR STRONG LEADERSHIP, EQUAL REPRESENTATION AND SUSTAINABLE CHANGE!

Who am I?

Came to the UK as refugees in a refrigerated container in 1999 as a three month old baby with my family. 

Social Activist - European Campaign for Human Rights 

Key Message:

Everyone should have the right to be given the opportunity to make meaningful contributions. But it is all about giving young people the chance for energetic and passionate people to take action and positively shape their environments and surroundings for the universal benefit of all.

I believe we will only be successful and effective if we are a collective force advocating for the interests of everyone and for that a strong and stable leadership is required and that is what I can offer the student population at King's. 

Main Aims: 

1) Provide effective representation for BAME Communities and ensure their voices are heard.

2) Encourage the university to increase participation of refugees in further education opportunities provided by King's College

3) Greater access to opportunities for all, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds

4) Increase scholarships to overcome financial barriers to education and make education accessible to all

5) Securing more money for King's to be able to reflect students' hopes and needs adequately and improve student life

My plan for the next few years is to enter politics, either as an MP or more ambitiously, to run for the Mayor of London.

Experience:

10 years of experience in the Charity Sector. Whilst studying I have been extensively involved in supporting the running of ACAA (Afghanistan and Central Asian Association), a charity that was founded by my father Dr. Nooralhaq Nasimi in 2001 to support refugee integration in the UK. 

Being a trustee at the Heathrow Communities Trust, (part of Heathrow Airport), I am experienced in representation. I will share my knowledge and experience for the betterment and growth of our very own student union to ensure it reflects the diversity of our great student population.
