Abhiram Magesh

District Councillor for Mickleham, Westcott & Okewood

Abhi is a 25-year-old Law student and former medical student, who grew up in the Home Counties and lives in Westcott. He is interested in the adversities people experience and the power of the government to correct injustices within people's lives.

While at school, he volunteered at a care home and worked part-time at a pharmacy which gave him insight into social care and mental health services and a perspective on the barriers faced in attaining access to healthcare. His training and rotations in medical school, with GPs and hospitals, he says "have deepened my understanding of our NHS and as a result, I am passionate about guaranteeing first-rate healthcare, free at the point of use".

As a Law student, Abhi has developed a keen insight into the Justice system. He says "I am intrigued that in an often unjust world, we have the ability to impose due process and protect our society from the debilitations of arbitrary decision making through the tools that the Law provides. I am therefore committed to ensuring the rule of Law and equitable justice for all people, as well as the fundamental principle that no-one is above the Law."

As an immigrant, Abhi has experienced diverse cultures which have shaped his values of inclusivity and openness. He says "Being British is integral to my identity and I'm proud of our values of fair play, tolerance and meritocracy which have underpinned the foundations in my life and which enabled my parents to succeed in making their life here".

In his spare time, Abhi works part time in the Watermill, enjoys writing and reading, and plays Badminton.
