Precious Onyenekwu Tatah
It has been such a pleasure and honour representing over 30,000 students at UWE Bristol. This time last year, I was presented with this huge task, which no one exactly prepares you for but with guidance, support, determination, passion and a curious mind, I was able to achieve so much.
Building and maintaining positive relationships is key to this role and I am very happy to have made a positive impact during my time here. This was by far one of my best experiences. Yes, it presented various challenges, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way because challenges are what makes us stronger, and if I could describe this feeling, in a nutshell, using an African proverb, I would say that
I have been involved in hundreds of meetings throughout this year and that is not an exaggeration! However, having completed 100% of my manifesto, I can gladly say that most of these meetings definitely had positive outcomes, including those highlighted below:
As well as many others
As well as Monthly Newsletters sent around to staff, over the past year I have kept a record of my activities to share with you all on a monthly basis. For easier access, please find below a link to the monthly updates.
July, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June.
To students: The Students’ Union has so much in store for you, so please do get in touch. My interest in the union began from being a member of a society to a leader of two societies to becoming a student representative and then yearning to do more than that. So please do give yourself the chance.
To staff: Involve The Students’ Union in your conversations and value their input as they are most likely to better understand the students’ needs and will actively drive actions.
I couldn’t thank everyone enough, from the students that voted me in, to those that didn’t but have worked alongside me this year:
I could keep going, but the list is endless and I honestly cannot thank you all enough! My family has also been a huge support system throughout this entire process.
I have had the honour and pleasure of serving and representing you as your Precious President. If you wish to stay in touch with me, you can do so via LinkedIn
