Liberation and Access Officer

I'm Sara

I'm an English Literature student and all-around nerd. My interest in liberation activism grew from my own experience as a queer Muslim woman, and the opportunity that the University of Manchester has given me to explore and discuss the lack of representation, services, and support that exists for marginalised people. As your Liberation & Access Officer, I hope to fight for a campus that is inclusive, safe, and caters to all students' needs.

My Wisdom

You have more power than you think! Bureaucracy can be off-putting - trust me, I'm not its biggest fan - but you have a voice that deserves to be heard, and it will be. I know I wouldn't have been able to accomplish anywhere near as much during my time here without the advice, support, and the warm environment of the Union and its societies. We are here to help you, so never hesitate to pop in, ask questions (no question is a bad one), and say whatever's on your mind.

Why SU?

The SU has felt like a home to me ever since I arrived in Manchester three years ago. Food, drink, study spaces, meeting spaces, friendly faces - everything you could possibly want during your time as a student is right here. It's a place where you can just be you - whoever that is!
