Divya Agarwal - Vice President of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care 2021/22 


What are your campaigns/ what would you like to achieve for students this year? 

My 3 campaigns are about
1. Period Poverty
2. Food Bank
3. Men well-being and language barrier in wellbeing

In any way to help students solve their problems or issues their facing.


Why are you passionate about this project idea? 

The idea of providing better health & hygiene facilities to the students within the university campus so that they could put their focus on studies and excel rather than pivot over period and related hygiene issues.


What's your ultimate ARU moment? 

They are many best moments ARU provided me in these past 2 years - The ultimate ARU moment that I could think of is the time I was declared the VP for HEMS. It was unexpected as I had the 2nd highest votes, but the tables turned around quickly when the results were out and the candidate with highest votes was eliminated because of unfair practice.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time? 

Since the start of my career, I have had my ideal career path in mind. My ideal career is one where my ideas are heard and in which I am making a real impact. I can see myself further developing my skill set in this role and eventually have more leadership tasks here. I see myself being even more confident in any field, with more knowledge and experiences. I hope to grow and lead others in reaching their own goals.

If you had a super power what would it be?? 

“To have the ability to share love. Because I want people to stay happy!”



What’s your favourite social media platform/ where can students find you to chat? 

Personally, I am quite active on Twitter and Instagram. And I think it’s safe to say that I handle my personal accounts quite well. Though I am active on Facebook too, but personally facebook does not appeal very much to me on a personal level. But I know, people would find it easier to catch me on facebook, so I am active there as well.
