I lived in London all of my life until I came to Hull. I’ve always been a massive fan of sports and I’ve always been interested in studying science so I came here to study Biomedical Science. As soon as I visited Hull I loved the campus and was impressed with the quality of the degree course. I got immersed into HUU life when I was in first year through sports. I am a member of the women’s basketball; I’ve been coach and president for a few years.
Sport has been a huge reason why I’ve enjoyed my time here in Hull; you meet so many amazing people and they can become friends for life.In my first year I got involved in campaigning during the HUU elections and I was hooked. I also helped with campaigning in my second year.
In my third year I decided to run for a position for the first time as a student trustee; I was really interested in finding out more about HUU, how it worked and what I could do to help improve the student experience. I really enjoyed my time as a student trustee. I then realised that I wanted to do more and that I could really make a difference so I decided to run for President. As a student officer I really want to do all I can to help students feel more connected to our Students’ Union and give everyone the student experience that they deserve.
