I believe I would be great for this role as through being a Course Rep and then Chair of School in my final year of university, I have been able to work with students and represent them within Senate and other executive team meetings. Within these meetings I have gained important communication skills, meaning I would be able to confidently articulate the views and opinions of YSJ if I am fortunate enough to be elected and attend the NUS Conference.
Also through being a member of the Linguistics Society, partaking in SW5 activities, and having committee roles within both Badminton and Hockey clubs, I have been able to meet and chat with a number of students from a variety of courses. Consequently gaining a little insight into the opinions and views of YSJ students about the university, and university life, as a whole.
It is with this invaluable experience and knowledge that I feel I could confidently represent the students of York St John at the NUS Conference so please vote for me to be your NUS Delegate!
