Lamia Sreya Rahman

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lamia is currently an undergraduate student at The University of Hong Kong pursuing a double major in American Studies and Criminology. Having grown up as an ethnic minority here of Bangladeshi roots, Lamia has experienced the diverse yet exclusionary duality of Hong Kong and wishes to work towards greater social integration of these communities.

Lamia is the President of the Equal Opportunities Student Ambassador Club at the University of Hong Kong. Her role focuses on providing equal opportunities to all students in the university  by mobilising the support of external organizations to offer and engage in more voluntary services. Through this, she has organised and assisted in campaigns on different human rights causes. She is also the General Secretary of the Amnesty International Club at her university, which is affiliated with Amnesty International Hong Kong. Lamia is also one of the Hong Kong Unison 2017 - 2018 awardees of the Yu Lin Hu Memorial Scholarship for Ethnic Minorities Students. As an awardee, she is invited to numerous political conferences, workshops and schools to discuss her community’s concerns about ethnic minorities in Hong Kong. A strong proponent of equal opportunities for ethnic minorities as well as women’s rights, Lamia wants to have greater impact in creating a Hong Kong  where these fundamental values are respected and has been featured by outlets such as RTHK and HK01 propagating the same. In her spare time, she likes to read, watch movies, play the guitar, or the harmonium (a classical Indian piano). She also spends her time tutoring ethnic minority students who will be taking their tertiary examinations and wishes to see them get into the colleges of their choice.

In Lamia’s Words:

“I believe Hong Kong will have achieved racial equality the day ethnic minorities no longer face direct and indirect forms of discrimination and we have true equality in society.”
