Ex Little Ilford student Rowshonara Begum was featured in the Newham Recorder recently, after writing her dissertation on a subject which confronted her every day on her journey to university.  Whilst studying Criminal Justice and Criminology at UEL, she couldn’t help but notice the number of homeless people, particularly in Stratford Centre.  She decided to conduct research, surveys and interviews and discovered that many homeless people do not qualify for accommodation because they just don’t fit into the right category.  She earned a first for her degree and is now studying for a masters in Social and Community work.   Rowshonara says “I’m pleased with it, not because I got a first, but because it’s about making an impact, it’s not about me, anyone can do research.  I just need to show society how important the topic is.”
