Hey you! Yes you! It’s me, Geeta, your Vice-President, you’ll see me around campus wearing green and on social media doing everything from welcoming students to shouting about our wonderful Game Changers alongside my wonderful team of 3 – Connor, Anaida and Scott!

What is ‘Our Skin, Our Stories’?

As a British Indian, I have come to realise BAME voices and stories are less heard of than White voices and stories. I don’t see myself or my BAME peers represented very often and when they are represented, it’s often not in a good light in any form of western media. So, I wanted to provide a platform for these voices and stories to be heard and allow BAME students at Staffs to feel a better sense of belonging.

Over my time as an Officer you’ll be hearing from students, alumni and staff of all backgrounds about BAME heritages and experiences. People from any heritage are welcome to write any of these blogs but the topic has to remain about BAME heritage.
In Black History Month (October), the blogs released focused on Black heritages and experiences as part of our #ProudToBeBlack campaign to empower Black students by seeing that, just like their non-Black peers, they too can attain jobs in any sector.
