In trying to make a positive impact, I’ve been involved in various SU campaigns and societies across the university. As Co-Chair Elect of the Labour Club, I’ve been planning our activities for the summer term, focusing on events promoting liberation groups such as ethnic minorities, LGBT+ and women in politics panels.
First getting involved in the Club as BAME+ Officer and being Events Officer for CRAE (the SU’s Campaign for Racial Awareness and Equality), I’ve always been passionate about making sure our political organisations and communities are truly diverse in representing students of all backgrounds. As Publicity Officer of Target Schools and Student Ambassador for access at my college, I’ve worked on reaching out to those beyond the Oxford bubble, trying to make Oxford a more accessible place.
Ultimately, I believe in fighting to make sure our organisations are representative of the diversity of our student body, and hope to bring this fight to the NUS.
The Impact Oxford NUS Delegates will:
1. Not align with any national NUS factions
