"At Newcastle, I took my Undergrad in Media & Cultural studies, and a Masters in Sociology. Through these experiences, I feel I can understand students who are at various life stages. The main commonality is that students at all stages desire a good quality educational experience. Having a research background in widening participation, I have a passion to achieve this good quality of education for students at all stages and from all backgrounds. There should be no inequalities in educational access from the point of admission, to the success you achieve after graduation. "
