Welfare & Inclusivity Officer

Mo Yusuf

Hi, I’m Mo and I’ll be your Welfare Officer for the year. This basically means that I look after the wellbeing of all students, signpost to official resources and additional support and that I’m your first point of contact for anything to do with Welfare within MedSoc. The reason I ran for this role is that there’s so many issues we all face in our day to day lives that we somehow feel uncomfortable discussing – it’s time to put an end to that and finally create an environment which is welcoming and inclusive for all. After all, that is what MedSoc is about. I’ve previously been on the committee as Societies Rep and I’m going into my Second Year. Feel free to drop me a message if there’s ever anything on your mind or you could do with some signposting.

What’s your favourite thing about BSMS?
All the amazing people I’ve met while being here, who have really made my experience here so much better. Whether it’s people from my cohort(s) or from having met them through societies, it’s been nice to have people who challenge me to be better and strive to make a difference while having the best university experience.

What is your best memory of BSMS?
The day I got accepted. Okay, but for real probably our first D-RAG. I can’t really say I remember much, but it was a very eventful night.

What would be your dream job if you weren’t doing medicine?
Probably law, it took me a while to choose between the two. Besides, who doesn’t wanna be the next Harvey Spectre??

What is your favourite film?
Probably The Lovely Bones. It can be a bit depressing, but the cinematography is amazing. Also, I really like the play on light vs dark.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Probably the Lidl bakery. I reckon I’d be able to survive with that 🙂
