Muhammad Firdaus is a recent graduate from the School of Languages, Literatures & Linguistics. He has been elected to serve as your Vice President for Societies & Volunteering.
A mature international student from Singapore, Muhammad has served as Chair of the International Students Society, Chair of the Writers’ Guild Society, Station Manager of the Storm FM student radio station, Captain of the Jujitsu Club and was active in the Islamic Society, representing Muslim students at interfaith events.
As Vice President for Societies & Volunteering, Muhammad intends to focus on raising awareness for Undeb Bangor’s Volunteering Projects, encourage Societies to become self-sufficient and promote sustainable growth, develop student media societies so all student groups can take advantage of those avenues of communication, and increase and improve representation for student minority groups, particularly International and Liberation (LGBT+, BAME, Disabled, Trans & Women) groups, within Undeb Bangor Student’s Union. He wholeheartedly supports the UMCB Welsh Union’s aims at raising awareness of Welsh language and culture within the student body, and takes pride on being truly ‘International’.
Muhammad also believes very strongly that lasting change of any sort must come from the ground up with the support of the student body, and will take time to happen, and prefers a collaborative approach and networking directly with students to establish systems that will eventually bring that change about.
