Meet the student community leaders in the Department of Education Studies.
Fahima Khatun (she/her), undergraduate
“My name is Fahima. I am a Student Community Leader for the Educational Studies department. I understand how nerve wracking the first day of University or new beginnings can be! So I’m here to help and support students if they have any queries or need guidance with essays and assignments.
I am a huge Arsenal fan and love playing football, I usually play every week! I really think it's so important to get the best out of your degree and make good use of the resources available. Feel free to approach me if you see me around! Enjoy your studies at Goldsmiths.”
Nora Khan (she/her) undergraduate
“Hi! I am Nora, an education studies undergraduate student in my second year. I aspire to be a teacher, as you might have gathered from my degree, though I am not particularly fond of children. I spend a considerable amount of my free time with my 3-year-old niece, around whom my life revolves. She is an exception. Other times, I enjoy spending time with my friends and trying out new foods.
Becoming a Student Community Leader is a privilege to represent my fellow students’ voices. I believe this opportunity will help me to enhance my interpersonal skills, including empathetic leadership, team management, effective communication & persuasion, time management, working under pressure and meeting the deadlines etc. Marvel quotation ‘great power comes with great responsibility’ makes me realise that student community leader is not just a fancy position, but a privilege and responsibility to represent fellow students’ interest by exercising my empathetic & solution centric leadership.
I volunteer at a local youth organisation, where I have served in a variety of capacities, including stewarding at events and now providing administrative support. Being a Student Community Leader has allowed me to become more confident in representing myself and other students. Don't be shy to come and say hello to me!”
