prioritise mental health above all else

I'm a second-year university student studying International Political Economy, passionate about community engagement as both a student ambassador and citybuddies leader. I create content on mental health and emotional awareness (IG = _.MHAAE). Outside academics, I enjoy sports, languages & business/finance, continuously seeking personal growth.
Mental Health, Wellbeing and Student Support
I will expand mental health services, including an increased number of counselling sessions and allowing peer counselling to take place so students can support each other, alongside university-wide awareness campaigns.
Student Communities & Events (Student Societies and Sports)
To invigorate campus life, ill collaborate with societies to host regular events like a cultural exchange day where students can showcase their diverse heritages through traditional attire, music and cuisine.
Careers and Employability
Additionally, I aim to streamline the process for securing placement years, creating direct links/partnerships between students and leading industry companies, thus facilitating practical, career-boosting experiences.
