Hi, my name is Bri and I have just finished my undergrad in Film Practices. Moved to Newcastle from New Zealand and you'd think that after a global pandemic I'd be itching to leave - but nope, the toon cant get rid of me! For a lot of us the past year has been challenging, and that is why I aim to make sure everyone, no matter their background, feel safe and supported during their time atNewcastle University. At the same time, I am also very passionate about advocating for women's rights, people of colour, sustainability, and those identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ community.
