Asalamu Alaykum! I’m Khadijah, a second-year history student at Caius and ISoc’s Secretary.
Simply put, I’m a fan of archives and museums, an enthusiast for photography, and enjoy the serenity that comes with going on walks. Exploring the world, as knowledge is not only obtainable from a textbook, is a lesson I have learned recently and appreciating the smaller pleasures of life is something I have been humbled by.
SubhanAllah, our ISoc community is expanding and as friendly and welcoming as always. Before coming to Cambridge, I was afraid that I would not be able to embrace my identity as a Muslim fully. ISoc quickly distilled that overarching fear and strengthened my trust in Allah, whether through beneficial talks, events, or the people. I have benefitted so much from a community I hold close to my heart, and serving it is an absolute honour that I hope to live up to.
As the Secretary, I will often be the behind-scenes helping hand, whether that may be to set up events, assist the Shura members in their roles, or organise the more admin side of my role.
Feel free to reach out if you ever want to talk! 😊
