Meet the student community leaders in the Department of Psychology.
We have five Student Community Leaders for Psychology this year, Adewumi Adegoke, Humaira Haque, Khadijah Aima, Khadeja Ahmed and Sadhana Chowdhury. Read a bit more about them below.
Adewumi Adegoke (she/her), undergraduate
“Hello, my name Wumi Adegoke and I'm studying a BSc in Psychology. I am interested in how the mind works and curious about the functions of the brain. I would say I'm funny and caring. I love swimming, talking and sleeping. I chose to be a Student Community Leader because I want to help other students and enable them to feel supported.”
Humaira Haque (she/her), undergraduate
“Hello, I am Humaira a third-year undergraduate Psychology student. I chose to study Psychology at undergraduate level because I enjoyed studying Psychology at GCSEs and at A level and I enjoyed the fact that Psychology tries to find answers to where 'traditional' sciences cannot.
In my role as student community leader, I hope to bring togetherness and a sense of community and advocate for change and aspire to bring a better learning environment and to bridge the gap between students and academic staff, this will be achieved through actively listening to students and meeting their needs where possible. I enjoy completing escape rooms with my friends, movie nights with my siblings, reading books and I really enjoy Ben and Jerrys cookie dough ice cream. I believe that we should appreciate every day and laugh at least once a day.”
Sadhana Chowdhury (she/her), undergraduate
“Hello! My name is Sadhana and I am a Psychology Undergraduate Student. I chose to pursue this degree because of my interest in human behaviour and how biological and environment influences can shape this, for example. I wished to better understand our mental processes, emotions and the large psychological relevance on the world today regarding mental health.
I wished to become a Student Community Leader representing the Psychology Department because of my passion to help others and to facilitate academic guidance to students who may need it. I have desires to collaborate in organising exciting social activities as well as ensuring the set-up of weekly group study sessions. I like to do various fun activities such as dancing, playing the piano, cooking, watching movies and discovering different food places with friends and family. I listen to a variety of songs from the UK, America and other countries hip-hop and rap for example, to songs within South Asian culture.
I am described as an energetic and approachable individual. I like to meet new people so please feel free to come and have a chat with me regarding anything about your studies in Psychology or in general! Just know that you always have us to talk to for help :)”
