A Voice for You on the University Council.

I am a part time mature student studying for a Certificate in History with the Institute of Continuing Education. I am a perennial student and hold a degree in law, a master's degree in law and corporate governance, a postgraduate diploma in psychology and an open BSc. I enjoy learning new things and discovering new areas of interest. I also have significant experience of the workings of deliberative bodies, having served as a town councillor for nine years and as an NHS Foundation Trust Governor for five years.

The past year has been very challenging for everyone and students have got a poor deal. The past year during the pandemic has been very challenging for my mental health, as I think it has for many people. Mental health problems is often overlooked because they represent a problem that is not obvious. It is time for this increasing issue to be recognised and it is time for all the problems we are facing as a student community to come to the fore and be taken into account.

As your representative on the university council, I will be your voice and I will fight for your interests!
