Hi, my name is Eleanor! I've lived in Newcastle for 4 years, first doing a BA in Dance and then starting at Newcastle University last year for my MA in Arts, Business and Creativity. I am now your Postgraduate Officer at Newcastle University Students' Union and I am so excited to start my new role! I ran for this position as it was an amazing opportunity to help support postgraduates, fighting for their views to be heard and helping to improve the postgraduate experience for all.
