Tell us one thing about you that people might not know:
Last year, I was doing my placement year abroad under an internship for a multi-billion company (Airbus Helicopters). Although I managed to further develop my skills in web development and programming, I also learned about the importance of having the right support in place, whether that be general support, or academia.
Since regardless of your skills, strength, or drive, there will always come a time where you need that support.
What do you think you can bring to the trustee role?
I have actually been a Student Trustee for the Students’ Union before. I was originally elected late into the 14-15 academic year, and re-elected for the full 15-16 academic year. I have been able to continue my role for this semester, since I was one of the most dedicated Trustees to my role last year, and one of the Student Trustee elects vacated their seat on the Trustee Board due to graduating.
I will continue to bring dedication to both the role, and the Union.
What is your favourite thing about Staffordshire University?
That the university embraces its own diversity; we have people of various cultures and backgrounds travelling from different parts of the country and even the world to study here, a large range of courses to study from in almost every industry, and we host events that accommodate to all of the above.
If you could be anyone for a day, living or dead, who would you be?
I would say Albert Einstein; it would be interesting to see the world from his perspective, since it was believed that he may have had Aspergers Syndrome like myself. It would have been interesting to have seen if there were similarities to how we think and view the world.
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 will have hoped to have helped students continue to make their voices heard in various matters, and help draw up viable solutions. Since it is my priority to ensure that they feel that their concerns are being heard and addressed, and to further emphasise that as a Students’ Union, students (and in some cases staff) are our priority to moving forward.
