  President: Sharif Kazemi   Well, hello there! My name is Sharif and I originally hail from Shiraz, a city in sunny Iran. I moved to the, not so sunny, UK with my family in 2010 and have been living in London ever since.  When I came to the LSE, I was looking for an engaging student-run society with an international composition and outlook. In UNSOC I found more than that. I found a university family in whose company I felt at home. I am proud to serve as its President for the next year and I look forward to meeting the next generation of the UNSOC family.

  Editor: Shirley Cheng   Hello! I am Shirley, a second-year management student. I will be joining the UNSOC marketing team as the Editor for the coming year.

  Marketing Officer: Sakshi Banka   Hi there, I’m Sakshi, your Marketing Officer for this year. I am Indian, but was born and raised in Thailand (yes, the beaches are stunning and no, I don’t speak any Thai).  I’m an International Relations student at LSE, and love Bollywood, history and watch too many trashy TV shows (RuPaul’s Drag Race is an addiction). I also like volunteering, am obsessed with social media and can’t wait to meet you all next year!

  Marketing Officer: Ryhana Rasidi   Hey there, I’m Ryhana - your marketing officer for this year. I am a Singaporean who has been practically raised in the United Arab Emirates for most of my life (no, I can’t speak fluent Arabic but I’ve learnt to withstand 45 degree heat).  Apart from being an Economics student at LSE, I love travelling abroad to discover the history and culture of other places around the world. I equally like spending my time outdoors and often fill my boredom by cruising on my longboard or finding places to eat green tea!
