About Me

My name is Ruth Adeniyi, and I am currently studying PPE, which is short for Philosophy, Politics and Economics. I’ll be the Black Students’ Officer for the 21/22 academic year.

What would you like to achieve during your time in office?

During my time as Black Students’ Officer, I would like to be able to increase student engagement with RUSU, by creating more events that unite the Black community.

Also, I would like to continue to raise awareness around mental health in BME communities so BME student feel more comfortable in talking about mental health, as well as seeking support.

Who is your biggest inspiration

My biggest inspirations are the people I have around me, such as my friends, family, and people I work with. I don’t think there’s a limit to who can inspire you. I learn so much from my friends and those closer to me and they help mould me into the person I am today.

What experience will you bring to the role?

In the last academic year I was the BAME student officer, so I have a good understanding of the type of responsibilities my within my role.


RUSU have created student-run, peer-support networks for you. This is your opportunity to meet other students from similar backgrounds, share common experiences and receive advice and support from each other. RUSU’s Black Students’ Officer will be running a peer-support network for BAME students alongside the Minority Ethnic Students’ Part-time Officer. You can find out when and where the next meeting is at the Student Networks page.
