Chair of the Board of Trustees
My role as a sabbatical trustee is to collaborate with the board in ensuring our students’ union has the necessary financial and structural stability for the purpose of its selfless, impartial, and smooth running, and in so doing represent our student body as per our bye-laws and live Union policy.
My role as a sabbatical trustee is to ensure that decisions made by the Students' Union are in the best interest of the Union and students. As a recent graduate and someone who was heavily involved in societies, I'm a strong believer of the power of the Union in bringing about positive change. I use my experience to steer the direction of the Union to make it truly representative of all students.
Being a Trustee at City Students’ Union is to ensure that the Union functions smoothly and that students remain at the heart of our work. I believe in the power of the student voice and I am keen to see the SU utilise this to bring about positive change.
