​Salma studies pharmacy at Aston University, and is also the BAME Officer at the Students' Union. 

Salma describes her role as 'making sure people know they have somebody to represent them' in discussions at the university around Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) attainment. For Salma, the fact that this year the university has invited student representatives onto its equality, diversity and wellbeing boards has made students feel happy that their issues and concerns are being heard.
