I just want to meet more people. I’m just a normal guy but I also feel I can be the person to help someone if they are facing difficulties.
- What course are you in?
Masters in Software Design and Development.
- Why is it important to have a role in the SU specifically for ethnic minorities?
It’s not this role (why I’m running for election), I’m just trying to involve myself (in the Students’ Union). I really like the way they engaged in and organised the recent protest in Eyre Square. I participated in that and I met a few people and I liked them, so I wanted to be a part of the SU and hopefully help get more ethnic minorities involved as well.
- What are your aims/goals for the role?
I have met a lot of people coming here and the main thing I want to do is interact with people from different backgrounds so I can maintain a friendship with them for a long time. I can exchange a culture with them and with the local Irish students I can help maintain a harmony.
- What past experience will stand to you if you win?
To be frank, I’m just a normal guy who’s pretty much average at everything. I have participated in a few elections back in my old college, to be a representative for my community. I just need to help people out here. Winning or losing doesn’t matter, I just need to be part of some organisation, be it a volunteer or a person who can assist others.
