SU President

Hello! My name is Precious Onyenekwu Tatah and I am your President.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance from UWE Bristol and I’m currently studying a Master’s in Cyber Security. In 2017, I won the Most Engaged Student Award as a result of my passion for students’ excellence and my commitments at UWE Bristol.

Having been in several leadership positions, I have the ability to be a true leader. My experience includes being the Founder and President of the Culture Fusion Society, a Pal Leader, Yoga Society President, Creative Director of the Africa Week Dance Team, a Student Representative and a Student Ambassador.

I have also travelled around three continents teaching in schools and communities where I have gained invaluable interpersonal skills.
