International students make up a large portion of the student population at the University of Alberta, yet issues that they face are often overlooked by the institutions that represent and govern these students.
Hello, there. My name is Bashir, and I am a Somali-Canadian university student and active citizen. Those who know me are familiar with my work on issues such as refugee health and post-secondary accessibility. Many people who don’t know me personally might also be aware of my opinions, but may not understand the context of my perspective or my motivations for sharing them.
