Motivasjon for å stille til dette vervet

My name is Md Shifat Ullah, most people know me as Shifat Rahman.

As an international student from Bangladesh living and studying in Norway for around 5 years, I have insights into what it is like to both study in another country radically different from Norway, and what student life here is like for someone who moves here. International students are a resource. But to function as a resource they need to be included. Both socially and in decision-making processes.

My main motivation for this position is to work for students and to achieve the sustainable development goal through internationalisations of education in Norway. I want to do this through the inclusion of all students in all aspects of education, integrating both international students and immigrants and mobilization of students and staff.

As a member of NSO international committee (2019-2020), I have gained the possible experience to work for the committee. If I get elected as the leader of the committee, I will continue the work legacy of the previous committee.  Such as I have experience in working for international students and gain a good knowledge of the sustainability of development through education and internationalization of academia. I will bring experience, motivation and high work capacity to the committee.

Now I’m doing a master’s in physics (Microelectronics) at the University of Bergen. I have completed Masters of philosophy in System Dynamics.  Here I am a politically active student, and I’m elected for my third term as the leader of International Students in the Student Parliament. Next to my political works, I am also involved in different student organizations both local and international levels.

I hope for your vote, so I can use my engagement and experience in international student politics as well as local student democracy to contribute to better terms for students all over the world.
