As-Salaamu Alaykum ! I’m Usman and I’m the ISoc treasurer :)
Being a part of the Shura in some way was my ambition since I joined the Uni, having made my first Muslim friends here. I was the only Muslim, and person of colour in my school – so being able to experience such diversity has been a really exciting change.
Prior to starting at Cambridge, I was set on doing Physics. However, after taking a year out to work in Medical tech – I changed my mind. Since I was a child, I’ve been into software, and have worked in a freelance capacity. I pray that these will assist me in spearheading the ISoc ‘tech team’ ventures Insha’Allah.
I went to school in Cambridge, and I hope this knowledge of the area will bring a unique perspective to our decision making.
COVID-19 has been a unique and unprecedented challenge for the past few Shuras, and this one is no exception. I endeavour to restore us to financial stability, by making sure we stick to budgets, and by searching for new sources of income Insha’Allah.
JazakAllahu Khayrun for reading, and I very much look forward to being part of the Shura for 2021 :-)
