Women's Part-Time Officer

Yasmeen Bashir - Your Women's Officer

Hi! I am Yasmeen.
I’m currently in my second year studying BA(Hons) International Relations, Peace and Conflict Studies. I’m from Dubai and I moved her in 2015. I am also part of the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities and I advocate for equality and awareness. I play the guitar and also read in my spare time. I love music, poetry, anime and sci-fi.

What do I do?
I’m the representative of all students who identify as women. I hold forums, discuss ideas with students and the SU staff in order to understand how to improve the experiences of women in London Met.

Why did I run?

I wanted to normalise talking about a lot of subjects that are considered taboo for women to talk about. I also wanted to create a safe space for women from all walks of life and who have different experiences that they might feel comfortable sharing with other women.

What am I working on?
I’m currently working on holding a women’s-focused employability event and I’m also working on creating a safe space for women who have suffered from different forms of abuse.
