Communication and Representation (CoRe)!
The Biomechanics class of 2020 is a diverse group. We are fettered with uniqueness in cultural experiences and social values. As an international student myself, I fully understand the challenges that come with adapting to a new environment and different cultures - Some of us are taking English classes, transcribing notes and replaying lectures multiple times to fully grasp what's being said. Others like myself (Lol) get lost on the tube now and then. It's okay, I get it.
My goal is to harness every resource in ensuring that every voice is heard, including co-opting the knowledge of our savvy London (more broadly, UK) dwelling classmates and also providing a platform for total representation for all. In Igbo, (my Nigerian language) - there's a proverb commonly used -
'If one person cooks for a group, they eat all the food, but if a group cooks for one person, he will not eat all the food.' (One person cannot do what a group of people can do.)
In igbo, Ọ bụrụ na otu onye esie nri maka otutu, ha na-eri nri niile, mana ọ bụrụ na otuotu esie nri maka otu onye, ọ gaghị eri nri ahụ niile.
I'm still figuring out life at Imperial. We all are. I want to ensure that 'We win together'.
P.S Even if you don't vote for me, at least you learned some Igbo!
