About Batool Wajiha Zaidi
Hello! My name is Batool and I am a second year Arts and Sciences at UCL. I take classes on environmental sciences, development studies and education.
For my summer research project, I co-produced a policy brief with student recommendations for sustainable futures in higher education which is addressed to policy makers in universities in the UK. This research project is still ongoing, under the supervision of Prof Lizzie Rushton, we are developing a research paper to further understand student ideas of sustainability in higher education. If you would like to be involved, please do not hesitate to send me a message!
Currently, at UCL I am the President of the UCL Sign Language Society where I lead a team of 9 other undergraduate students to organise sign language classes and events to raise awareness of deafness for a society which has over 200 student members. I am also a part of the Ahlulbayt Islamic Society and UCL TedX society committees. I am really passionate of working with other students to make a positive impact in my university.
