What are your top 3 tunes?

3) Drake and Rihanna - Too good
What are your priorities for your year in office?
Officer Visibility - I want as many students as possible to know who the officers are! We are elected by you, for you! 
We each have a Faculty that we are responsible for, so the relationship between the SU and the university is stronger to make sure student voices are heard. These are:
Leigh - Faculty of Medical Science
Grace - Faculty of Science and Technology
Jamie - Arts, Law and Social Sciences
Kat - Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education
Precious - Lord Ashcroft International Business School
Our beautiful faces are up on the wall in the street in Cambridge and the wall in the Student Lounge in Chelmsford.
Representation in Sport - For too long there has been a lack of student representation within Active Anglia, this includes students not being in the decision making processes surrounding sport. I will be working on creating a structure that suits both the students and the university to create a partnership and ultimately improve the student experience of sport whilst at ARU. 
Mental Health - There is a rise in students with Mental Health issues that are too easily left unsorted. As a team we are going to be running campaigns throughout the year to raise awarenes and start the conversations to tackle these issues. If anyone wants to help, let us know! 
Tell us one thing that not many people know about you?
Not many people know that I have 9 piercings and 3 tattoos.
What is your ultimate ILoveARU moment? 
GLOBAL WEEK! A project set up by the Officer team in 2014/15, this has grown into a wider union/unviersity celebration to appreciate how beautiful and culturally diverse Anglia Ruskin is and being proud of the community that we learn in!
