MSc Information Systems
Information Systems student Salem is a second-generation British Indian born and raised in London. They are a member of several student societies, including the Arts Society, Horror Society, Walking Club and Dance Society.

My name is Salem. I am a mature postgraduate student in the Information School, and I have a professional and educational history in literature and libraries. After the height of the pandemic, I chose to study at University of Sheffield because of the nearby Peak District and the city's queer culture. I have loved connecting with people from around the world as part of my studies. Beyond curriculum learning, joining the University’s societies and clubs has been a great way to connect with new people and explore what the city and surrounding nature have to offer. My favourite part of Sheffield would be Bole Hill- it’s free, gorgeous, and five minutes up the road.

I enjoy reading, writing, creating art, video games, swimming. I dabble in cosplay, and am 3-D printing part of my latest costume using the iForge facilities.

My pronouns are they/them.
