Laura is your Vice President Science and Technology, here's her update on what's been achieved within six months of being in Office.
Hi everyone! It’s me again, back at you with another update.
Now that we’re approaching the winter holidays, it means that me — and your other Officers — are now six months (halfway) into our term in office. Talk about time flying, right?
Since the last update I put up (which was about two and a half months ago now, for our 100th day in office), I have to say — I feel like I’m way better at my job than I used to be. I’m more confident speaking up in meetings now, for sure. My projects have been getting easier and easier to plan. The routine of 9-5 work is settled, and there are so many things I’m proud of having been part of — the Let’s Be Honest report launch, helping get extensions when assignment guidelines weren’t clear, supporting our Campaign Reps, submitting policy to council… the list goes on and on!
Don’t get me wrong — the job is still tough, but it’s getting better as days go by. Things happen faster, and we do things better with practice. If you think it’s something you want to know more about or might be interested in – feel free to send me an email or a direct message about running in the elections in March!
When the New Year rolls around, I’m really excited about everything that the team and I have going on – I’m running my LGBT+ History Month events in February, stage two (recipe trials) of Johanna’s food campaign will be starting, Eliza has her cultural Give-It-A-Go’s, Kirran’s part-time job fair is happening, and Jamie’s project on the SU and retention looks like it’s moving in a great direction and I’m really excited to see how it proceeds.
I hope you all have a great break. Make sure you take some time to practice some self-care (you can find some tips here) and I wish you all the best for any January assessments you have! If you don’t have any, then enjoy your extended break from uni!
