Muhammad Mehmood
Throughout my childhood I had to face being excluded from things other kids considered to be normal as I could not fit in them because of my weight which was extraordinary (130 kgs). Kids would body shame wherever I would go. My parents would not let me go to places where other kids had access to as they thought this kind of bullying would destroy my confidence. This sensation of being excluded created this void in me. I always thought that if it were up to me, I would never let this happen to anybody but I felt helpless. Last year I had an opportunity to fulfil this childhood wish as I became the welfare officer. I realised while helping you guys, I was really helping myself and I would love to continue it this year as well. As I completed my O Levels, after thorough self-consideration I learned how to fight my demons. I turned my life around. I lost 60 kgs. I got outstanding results that landed me here at UCL. In the first term here, I again faced some problems. I was homesick. I wasn't able to catch up on studies as the system was so different. I often used to cry in the student centre. But then again, I learned how to face all of this. I didn't contest for any leadership position. I'm just here to help. I just don't want anyone else to bare what I had to withstand. I would be able to understand your problems as I've been through enough. Even if I lose these elections, I beg all of you to come see me whenever you want to talk to someone. I will surely try to help you!

Relevant Experience:
• Founder and Tutor head for a non-profit organisation in Canada, Education To Inspire, where I was teaching and holding wellbeing sessions for students who were affected due to the pandemic.
• Weekly wellbeing sessions were aimed to ensure students can meet each other online, discuss how they were feeling, how they were coping and following up if they needed any further help.
• Carrying out mindfulness sessions at my school to help students cope with their studies and stress.
• Events Intern at Dawat.
• Analyst at UCL M&A Group.
My Vision:
1) Organise Wellbeing events with a Flexible approach:
• Continue the fun socials and chill welfare events such as game nights and provide a safe environment for members.
• Introduce mindfulness sessions (meditation) to help cope with studies.
• Partnering with a yoga specialist and further help our members to better cope with their daily life. This can be given either online which can be participated in the comfort of your room or in-person event.
• Raise awareness for mental health through participating in for example FITE.
2) Increase Inclusivity and Diversity
• Include wellbeing events with other societies and meet lots of people from different backgrounds.
• Pairing every first-year student with a senior in their same degree discipline to help them transition to university life through a mentorship scheme.
• Greater representation for international students to feel welcomed.
