Meet our Welfare Team

This year we see the launch of your very own Muslim Welfare Team. We are here for all pastoral, academic and wellbeing support. If you have a concern on campus and don’t know who to go to, drop an email to the welfare team (welfare@manchesterisoc.com) and they’ll support and direct you!

Committee and Welfare Officer
About Me
Salams! I’m afraid to inform you that I’m yet (another)(2nd year) medic on committee – but rest assured, I won’t (try to) bring that up in conversation. In no particular order of importance: I like Malteser buttons. My puns are always intended. 24/7 chatterbox. (50%) Birmingham raised, but I don’t have a Brummie accent (I hear your sigh of relief…). (50%) Dubai raised. (100%) Syrian. Pro-procrastinator (©). Vanilla-Latte is my life-saver in grim MCR weather. Passionate about all-things academia. Part-time joker. Big mental-health advocate. Can’t say no to pizza. Still afraid of the dark. My voice will probably burst your eardrums (please ensure to stand at least 3m away). Full-time overthinker. Obsessed with Harry Potter. Aspiring writer (look out for ‘She tried to be funny, but no one laughed: an autobiography’).

And…I’ve reached the 150-word limit.

About Me

“Assalamualaikum!

I’m Aysha, a second year Medic from somewhere further north than Manchester. I was seriously so close to becoming a pilot but unfortunately my bank balance said NO (RIP). In other news, I really enjoy drawing and have always loved badminton; which I tend to get very competitive at [like most things]. Official endorser of Cadbury’s Brunch Bars which I like to force feed my dear friends during lectures. Pro meme tagger, especially on Facebook. I also like to run – for no particular reason whatsoever. But on a serious note, I’m honoured to be one of your welfare officers this year and am always here to help. Say hi if you see me around!”

About Me

“Assalamu Alaykum!

I’m Maaria and yes, I am a (3rd year) medic. You’ll learn to love us 😁

Born and raised in Manchester, when I’m not kebab surfing on the curry mile I enjoy baking, reading and obsessing over the Lord of the Rings.

I’m also passionate about mental heath and I look forward to being one of your welfare officers this year. If you ever feel like you need any support don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m always more than happy to have a chat inshaAllah.”

Welfare Officer
About Me

“Assalamu Alaikum!

My name is Junayd and I’m a second-year medical student.

I’m a ‘welfare officer’ for the upcoming year, meaning you can contact me anytime (either online or in person) if there are any concerns you’re having about any part of uni life (or if you’d just like to chat, I’m told I have decent banter)

I enjoy demolishing my mates at Fifa, failing to cook basic nutritious meals for myself and sometimes reading. If I’m not attending lectures like a goody two-shoes you’ll probably find me losing to someone at table tennis on the top floor of Mcdougall’s.

I hope that by getting to know others and myself through ISOC you’ll be surrounded by great company, make friends for life and generally have an amazing time.

If you see me around campus, please don’t be intimidated by the towering 5’8” figure that I am and do say Salaam 😃
