VP Societies & Communication

VP Societies and Communication

Hello, my name is Samuel and I’m your VP Societies and Communication.

I have been the President of the Nigerian Society Network (NSN) here at UWE Bristol. It was a great opportunity and a rewarding one at that, with two awards to crown the year. This single role on its own set me up on a good leadership path as well as added more values to my skills (organisation, communication and teamwork).

I really want students to have fun this year as it has been a quiet year at the university and as you know, all work and no play…. I believe WE can achieve this together.
