'I’m a strong willed and motivated person, with a desire to improve the university experience for all, and ultimately get the job done. Taking on the role of improving student welfare represents a challenge, but one where my passions, experiences and excitement lies. Support and well-being needs to be at the forefront of student life and to be accessible and available all year round. I’m keen to build upon previous work the SU has done and set the ball rolling for putting student welfare back as a main goal for the university.’
