Ahmd - Students' Union President
Meet the President of our Students’ Union at UWE.
When Ahmd Emara was in your shoes, he never imagined he could be leader of an organisation that represents over 27,000 students. Becoming President of the Students’ Union at UWE has transformed his university experience and changed his entire career plan.
“A university is nothing without its students, and it’s my role to represent you. I’m here to turn your ideas into action and to campaign on the issues that affect you. Starting university can be a daunting prospect but the Students’ Union is here to help new students settle in. With over 100 societies and more than 40 sports clubs to choose from, it’s easy to meet people.
There’s even an Advice Centre here if you need it. When it comes to student life Bristol is one of the best places to be. The facilities are great and you’re surrounded by art, culture and history. I started off as a course rep and worked my way up to President – a challenge that's helped me discover new things about myself. I’ve learned new life skills and valuable practical experience. It's opened my eyes to opportunities I’d never thought possible.”
