(Economics BSc, 1990)

I started a project with Tower Hamlets, the University and Barclays to give the Mile End Road a makeover. Tower Hamlets were keen to be involved because they saw the road as the public face of the borough and the University and local business saw the benefits too. So the plan was that I was going to be employed for a year by Tower Hamlets to oversee the scheme, but six weeks before the end of my term as President, central government redirected the funds away from Tower Hamlets and I was jobless!

(Geography BA, 2018)

I had always wanted to study in London and Queen Mary had the most liberal course options which explored Geography from non-western perspectives. It is also the only Russell Group university in London with a campus and it had some of the best field trip options in the country.
