Hi! I am Hanife, a third year History student. I am passionate about decolonising the history curriculum and believe that empowering students individually will encourage decolonisation within the wider university community. Alongside my academic pursuits, I have co-founded a creative arts network entitled ‘The Creative Switch’ (@creativeswitchexeter), which spotlights BIPOC creatives, their work, and their experiences at university. This was originally inspired by my work on tackling existing issues of diversity within Exeter’s creative circles alongside other facilitators at ‘Opening Up Exeter’ (@openingupexeter). I have also recently started a student-led podcast named ‘The Minority Effect’ (@minority_effect) which sheds light on different as well as shared experiences of minority groups across different UK institutions.
