Choto update for the academic year 2021-22
My name is Anesu Choto and I am currently serving my second term as Vice President at Staffordshire University Students' Union. I have a Degree in International Tourism Management and after my sabbatical, I'll finish another Degree in Business Management. One thing I have learned is that It is optimism and faith leads to achievement and nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Recently conducted a survey to students to get more data and help uni recognise the cost of living crisis. A good outcome is MJ's letter to Rishi. Also email to Jo Gideon
