Role description

The Candidates


Muneer Hussain

I believe that as students, we are humanity's greatest asset. If the welfare of the students are catered for, then the welfare of the world will follow naturally. Our wellbeing comes above all else and it’s time we put ourselves first. A vote for me is a vote for yourself.
