Fadhila Al-Dhahouri has just made history after being elected as the first female Muslim president of Cardiff University’s Students’ Union. Cardiff University is a public research university located in Cardiff, Wales, UK.
“As the first female Muslim and first international student President, I feel immensely proud and grateful for this achievement. We have opened new doors for students who are international and from minorities.” says Ms. Al-Dhahouri. She hopes her win will inspire more students from minority backgrounds to get involved and go into public service. “I feel this is a massive step towards a new era and future for Cardiff University students… no matter where you come from, anyone can make an impact. I stand for a bold, transformative and inclusive union for all. I heard you! Let’s make this happen!”
