My role at the SU is to ensure students of all backgrounds and cultures, including those from marginalised groups, are represented on campus. You’ll see me running various campaigns throughout the year, or helping students running their own campaigns on issues that matter to them.
It’s easy to find yourself making friends on your course or from cultures that you naturally gravitate too. But as Newcastle University is such a vibrant and diverse space, I am keep to help students celebrate and share their experiences with students from all different walks of life.
Mental health is also a big priority of mine, knowing that the financial, academic and social pressures that come with university can sometimes get quite overwhelming. There is lots of support available for you through both the university and the union, and across this year I’ll be running a mental-health campaign to raise awareness on some of the key mental health issues students face and the different ways to tackle these issues.
