My role as Disability Officer, is to support, represent and raise awareness of the disabled community on campus. Working within the union to do awareness events, as well as with the institution and individual schools to ensure improvements to the accessibility of the university. More than anything, to represent and listen to the disabled students on campus.
I have been studying at Newcastle University for the past three years, going into my fourth. Throughout, I have been on the LGBT+, It Happens Here and Disability and Neurodiversity societies committees, I am truly passionate about student activism and working to help and support others. I used to feel ashamed of my disability, and I want to work to help others not to feel that way.
