View Manifesto

Candidate for the position of President



Omotola Dairo

Who am I?

A master student of International Business from Nigeria. I am passionate, driven and dedicated. I love to learn and explore. I like to talk, catch up on my favourite tv shows, play volleyball, play soccer (not very good at it but yes I play!), love to experience new culture. I like to keep things as interesting as I can. I wake up in the morning grateful to God, check on my emails and social networks, work, catch up on family news, hangout with friends. Depending on what the week or day brings I make the most of it. Dreams are free, so I figured if it doesn't cost anything, why not dream big. I hope to one day be the CEO of an NGO to Inspire and impact lives around the world. 

I enjoy volunteer work and community activities. So before the current global distancing I volunteer a couple of hours monthly at an organization that hands out clothes and food to children homes. I have found my purpose and passion to serve through charities by giving back to the society as well as leading individuals beyond their limit. I am currently involved in various voluntary programs like British heart foundation, Course Rep of MSc international business, ARU international buddies and many other voluntary programs. I always try to give the best of myself in all I do. I believe the growth and development of the people around you is the highest calling of leadership and I‘m therefore determined to ensure the growth and development of this School as your student union President.

I humbly believe that I have the requisite skills and ability to function effectively as President of Anglia Ruskin university if elected. 

It is imperative for students to elect someone who understands their interests and who is committed to safeguarding such interests. I am therefore seeking your support and votes even as I offer myself to serve you in the capacity of President. 



Thank you
