Rahma Hussein, BA History, 2nd year, Vice-President for Activities and Development at King’s College London Students’ Union (KCLSU)
Rahma is an activist, championing issues surrounding intersectional feminism, disability rights and migrant welfare. Being a member of the Labour Party, she’s organised and held forums for London Young Labour, and campaigned extensively during the general election. She’s also the spokesperson for a national campaign called UNDIVIDED – a movement led by young people to get the best deal for Brexit.
At King’s, she’s held committee positions for the Intersectional Feminist Society, Disabled Students’ Association, Labour and History Outreach. Most notably, she is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of I RISE Magazine – an online magazine dedicated to women of colour and non-binary people of colour at KCL, the very first of its kind at the university. With all these, she’s been recognised in a variety of ways – by the national press, to BBC 100 Women, and being named by Barclays as “Top 25 Women to watch at King’s in 2017”.
