Disabilities Network

I'm Jasmine, a second year Chemistry undergraduate at Imperial, and your Disabilities Officer!

This is my first time working for the Student Union, and I am incredibly excited to see where this role takes me. In the past, I have received a leadership prize in school for working with teachers and students on various large projects, such as leading the yearbook team and chamber choir. I hope to use these transferable skills to enhance your student experience at Imperial.

I love art, music and drama - anything in the creative realm. My favourite hobby at the moment is creating colourful and creative makeup looks. I have also recently picked up digital illustration and painting - something I have not done since school!

I am diagnosed with fibromyalgia - a chronic hidden disability. As a disabled student at Imperial, I can relate to and understand issues that arise within the disabled student body. 

My aim for the year ahead is simple: I want the disabled community at Imperial to feel more connected within the University. 

My goals:

  • Create a platform to allow disabled students to communicate with one another where they can relate to and support each other
  • Ensure new undergraduates and postgraduates joining Imperial are aware of the Disability Advisory Service and what it offers
  • Educate students about disabilities to raise awareness and try to destigmatise the negative connotations against disabled people
