The Students' Union President

I studied Aerospace Engineering at UWE and last year served as your Vice President Community & Welfare. Prior to that, I was actively involved in numerous sports clubs and societies and even founded my own, the Speak Up Society, which was shortlisted for its first ever award - the Contributions to Equality Award - in 2021. I was also a course Student Rep, EDM Diversity & Inclusivity Department Rep, Student Ambassador and UWE BoxED Ambassador.

My Manifesto

1. Curriculum & Employability

  • Lobby the university to make industry-based placements compulsory by building it into the course structure to enhance graduates' employability skills and outcomes.  
  • Work closely with the university to imbed wellbeing in the formal curriculum. 
  • Launch a Neurodiversity Celebration Week to raise awareness and break the stigma around neurodiversity in Higher Education. 

2. Students’ Welfare 

  • Establish a student-led support scheme of Welfare Champions from all campuses.  
  • Lobby for increased financial support for international students and improve their overall student experience. 
  • Launch a Speak Up Campaign Week and messages throughout the year to eradicate racism, any kind of discrimination and harassment on campus.  

3. Environmental Sustainability 

  • Eliminate all single use plastic in the Students’ Union and university commercial services by end of 2023. 
  • Develop a Students’ Union Ethical Investment Policy in alignment with the new 2022-2026 strategy.
