Amanda Payne's Story

"Amanda has represented her peers for a number of years now, first as a Level rep and now as Department Rep. She has grown into the role so well and has cultivated strong working relationships with staff and students alike. She works hard to ensure her peers have a voice and approaches her work in a collaborative and supportive manner. Amanda is not only a supportive representative for the students across our department but she has also become a valued ambassador for our course. She lives the Staffs Values of being Brilliant & Friendly and works hard with academic staff to improve the student experience in all areas. We have come to rely on Amanda to offer a robust view of our course and participate in finding solutions to any problems while also maintaining and cultivating solid relationships with all academic staff. It is a pleasure to work with her! "
