Richard Mallinson - Former Deputy Chair of Forum - One World Week (OWW)
What has being involved in OWW meant to you?
"OWW was the seminal experience of my time at University, having been involved for three years. It was the achievement I was most proud of and gave me the most transferrable skills, and was where I met many of my closest friends – as students from countries all around the world, there was an opportunity to learn about global matters."
Isaac Newton Acquah - Former Warwick SU Sabbatical Officer
What made you want to become a Sabbatical Officer?
"I have always been involved with the Students' Union - whether it meant going to events like Top B (which used to be our Monday-night event) or being part of societies. During my time at Warwick I gained a lot of experience in communication - often as marketing director of a society - and on top of that I had a business degree. Applying to be a Sabb just felt right.
Given that I connected with a lot of people and got to know a lot of members in societies that were really making a big difference at Warwick I felt I would be well suited in becoming a link between the students and the Union - a lot of people had something to say and didn't know how to."
