Adesewa

Adesewa studies biochemistry at the University of Huddersfield.

For Adesewa, it is important that the BAME attainment gap is seen as a university-wide issue. It should not be left to the BAME community to fix. She would like to see university leaders starting conversations about race and making a consious effort to engage with BAME ambassadors to see what changes they would like to see made, and make sure that they are listened to.

Adesewa has been involved in the BAME ambasaddor scheme, working with the library services on a project called Broaden my Bookshelf. The project has been examining how diverse the university's reading lists are and speaking to lecturers and students to see which ways the curriculum can be changed to be more inclusive to BAME communities.
