I lead your Athletic Union, offering you opportunities in sport at all levels. I aim to increase the number of students participating in and enjoying sports and also campaign to improve your experience of sport.
I came to Hull four years ago and back then my intention was to focus on just my degree, if you had told me that I would stand for election in my final year I would have looked at you as if you were mad!
So how did I end up here? Well, it all started when I joined the rugby club, I played a lot of rugby before coming to University so it was a natural step for me. I steadily got more and more involved with the club and by extension Hull University Union itself, culminating in being President of the club last year (and Treasurer the year before) as well as being a member of the AU Executive Committee. This is what really opened my eyes to all the good work the union does for all students and from there my belief grew - I knew I had something to offer.
Running for President of Sport was a daunting prospect for me, but ultimately it has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Sport at Hull and sport in general have given me so much over the years, my aim this year is for as many people as possible to have positive experiences of sport and to help them realise how much sport enhances their student experience, their personal development and their career prospects.
