Lamis Serroukh

2017/18 Fellow

A Londoner of Moroccan heritage, Lamis studied French and English at UCL. During her year abroad in Montreal, she completed a research project into the relationship between political rhetoric and identity for visibly muslim women. This later informed her role as Women’s Representative on UCL’s BME network committee. Since graduating, Lamis’ love of volunteering transitioned into a career in the charity sector: from heading communications and fundraising at social mobility startup Team Up, to marketing and fundraising at social action organisation, MADE. Most recently, Lamis has been in Morocco supporting Walou, a grassroots charity that rehabilitates street children.

Keen to combine her desire to make a positive social impact with her passion for delving into questions of identity, Lamis is particularly interested in exploring how social entrepreneurship can be used to empower marginalised people. In her spare time, Lamis loves watching films, baking cupcakes and trying to learn new languages.
