Cllr Maisha Begum

I was born and raised in Tower Hamlets. I am a first generation student, having completed both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Politics from London School of Economics and Political Science with a specialisation in EU-UK policy.

I am a caseworker for the Financial Ombudsman Service with over four years of experience in the financial industry and five years in the NGO sector. There are many challenges facing local people such as housing overcrowding, lack of employment opportunities that I am committed to remedying. Therefore, my main objectives are to enhance, engage and empower the quality of life for our residents, especially the most vulnerable and marginalised.
