Tell us one thing about you that people might not know:
Although I appear introverted, if I have an opinion, I will definitely speak out about it!
What do you think you can bring to the trustee role?
I can bring my experiences of being a Psychology Society committee member, being on the Panel for the Better Staffs Forum and volunteering within the Students’ Union. These experiences have give me sound knowledge of the workings of the Union and have helped me to develop key applicable skills, especially interpersonal skills, active listening skills, leadership, teamwork and much more!
I can also bring my experience of collecting feedback for the Psychology Society, helping to promote and conduct the Student Surveys through a previous job, conducting feedback surveys for Hanley Park’s Restoration Project and collecting feedback from students during my Leadership Race campaign. I would like to ensure that the student voice is continuously heard and represented, so this experience will help me when collecting the views of students.
I think it’s important to have a Stafford presence. A lot of the Stafford students are thinking that because the campus is closed, they’re being pushed to one side and not being taken seriously. So to have two students on the trustee board and one member of the officer team from Stafford is great, because they can understand the struggles.
If you could be anyone for a day, living or dead, who would you be?
Bill Gates, he does alright. Just for the money and getting to know every tech leader up there, he has a good friendship circle.Definitely somebody like Malala Yousafzai, because she is extremely courageous and despite all the barriers she faced, she isn’t afraid to fight for what she believes in! It would interesting to see courage from her perspective.
What is your favourite thing about Staffs Uni?
The overwhelming support given by students, academic staff and Union staff, especially through the Psychology Society and during the Leadership Race!
