KEMI AGUNBIADE FOR VP WOMEN

Hi, I’m Oluwakemi or just Kemi – a finalist law student at Wadham and for the last few years of my degree, I’ve shown a dedication to supporting the women and enbies within our university to best of my abilities. In my second year I was Wadham SU’s Women’s officer and this past year I have held the role of Co-Chair of It Happens Here Oxford:  I ran welfare drop ins, panels, a vigil, women’s career talks, written contraceptive and sex guides, helped with policy change and stood my ground in meetings with people who I had to prove my worth to. In both roles I acted by being the change I wish I had when I came to Oxford and that is what I hope to continue. Especially as I hope to represent and platform the most silenced members of society as a black queer woman myself.
