Survivor of APS massacre leads Oxford Union

LONDON: When Ahmad Nawaz was shot by the Taliban at his school, in a terrorist attack that killed his brother, he thought his life was over.

Now the 21-year-old student has been voted president of Oxford Union.

Nawaz, who came to the UK when he was 14, wants to make the union more inclusive and attractive to marginalised groups and those from disadvantaged and disabled backgrounds.

He told The Times he spent much of last night crying with joy and the first person he rang with the news was his mother. “It’s been the most emotional ride I’ve had in a long, long time,” he said.”
