Councillor Sufia Alam
I’ve lived my whole life in Tower Hamlets and attended Central Foundation Girls’ School, before studying law at university. I was a school councillor and mentor, and in 2010 I was one of the top ten candidates for the Young Mayor of Tower Hamlets elections.
I currently work as a case investigator in the financial sector. As a community activist and charity worker, I’ve petitioned on many local issues but my priorities are to tackle anti-social behaviour and provide support for younger people.
I’m a proud British Bengali Muslim woman and I want to represent you, as I understand that your issues are my issues, and your successes are my successes. I am just like you and I want to be your voice in our community.
