Proud to be Staffs Story: Emily Baughn

Staff | Students' Union Staff


"Emily is one of the brightest, strongest and most kind hearted souls that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting throughout my time at university. Not only did we both start working at LRV at the same time, but we’ve also been through thick and thin together at university and in Vietnam on a university trip which taught me so much more about how great of a person she is. These past two years may have been tough on her but despite everything she’s been through whether than be at home or at uni, she’s never stopped being the bubbly and helpful person that I’ve come to know and love. Personally she’s helped me through many of life’s great challenges and pulled me through even more late shifts, assignments, and periods of self doubt when all I wanted to do was leave. From all the fun times like nights out, shopping days, field trips and even work, to the not so fun times battling with my home life and my mental health she’s always been an amazing friend and I really couldn’t ask for more in a person. This amazing woman is one of the reasons that I’m proud to be staffs, her lights shines beyond her and it can be seen in everyone that has the pleasure of calling her a friend :)"
