Manchester, United Kingdom
Medical Microbiology postgraduate student
I have been a BSAC member since January 2021
I am working jointly with the department of Communications, Marketing and Student Recruitment at The University of Manchester, in developing a new student communications and engagement strategy.
I am also collaborating with Antimicrobial Resistance Society at the University of Manchester on the contribution of climate change to antimicrobial resistance.
I cooperate with the Students for Global Health university representatives in advocating for climate change onto the medical curriculum, and other healthcare courses, within the UK.
As a student representative, I link the students and the University and make sure that student opinions are heard, and teaching and learning experiences for the students I represent, are as rewarding as possible.
Studying Medical Microbiology helps me to have a better understanding of antimicrobial resistance which threatens the ability to control infectious diseases, impacting not just health but also welfare.
I am a visual learner and I have managed to engage my creative side by being artistic and skilful. As a result of this, I have learnt various skills such as crocheting, baking, doing DIY projects and braiding my own hair.
BSAC is enabling me to network with world-leading scientists and professionals in health care through conferences and events and also being part of a larger community that is dedicated to making the world a better and safer place for future generations.
