Whilst a student at Portsmouth, Anjola campaigned for diversity in the Student Union through the position of Student Support Officer. As a result of his campaign, black student votes went through the roof for the first time in the University's history. The following year the Student Union had a Black Student Officer position, and eventually various officer positions for other diversity groups such as Mature Students, Disability, Women, and LGBT.
