We asked Swetha
What are your top three songs?
I’m not overly familiar with English music, but I started to learn after working at LRV.
Alan Walker – Faded, Sia – Cheap Thrills. Apart from that I mostly like Indian classics.
Tell us one thing about you that people might not know
I was in boarding school for 12 years and I nearly became a nun! In the end I decided to keep my education going though.
What would you say is your proudest moment at Staffs Uni so far?
After I first came here I became the first Indian to work in LRV, that’s one moment. Then scoring top marks in one of the core modules. Then of course it’s being elected as student officer.
If your house was on fire and you could only save three things, what would they be and why?
My housemates, there’s nobody else to annoy me if I don’t have them. My diary. Myself.
If you could be anyone for a day, living or dead, who would you be?
I’d be the vice-chancellor of Staffs, so I could really change things.
If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why?
I’d be spinach. I love cooking and in India, when my mum taught me how to cook, she explained why each thing was useful: spinach is good for your eyes, which I think is very important.
What would your plan be in a zombie apocalypse?
I’d get a gun and an antidote so it doesn’t matter if I get bitten anyway.
If we are sitting here a year from now and celebrating a great year in office, what would you have hoped to have achieved?
I’d be happy to say I’ve completed at least three quarters of my promises for office and have the other promises in motion.
