I joined the university in 2019 from Telford to do BSc (Hons) Applied Zoology. I was involved with the SU when I was a student here as I was Vice Chair and Social Exec for Harper Adams Conservation Society as well as being a member of the society for all 4 years. My career interests include primates, reptiles, zoo keeping and conservation. I enjoy painting, drawing, nature walks and baking in my free time. I also enjoy binge watching Netflix with my favourites being Friends, Bridgerton, The Witcher and David Attenborough Our Planet.
Why did I run for VP?
I ran for the Vice President position because I wanted to give back to the Students Union for all they have done to make my university experience so memorable and fun despite being heavily impacted by COVID. During my year in office, I will be planning and executing activities and events which promote inclusivity of all backgrounds, heritages and identities among the student population as well as continuing the important work implemented by my predecessors.
- Mental Health Awareness
- Representation and inclusivity for underrepresented groups
- Cost of Living help and support
- Provision of quiet spaces of campus
- Encouragement of Sports and Fitness participation
I love Harper because…
Harper has a tight knit community feel, with lots of interesting people from a range of backgrounds making finding and making friends a breeze. I also love the campus environment and the social events put on by the SU as they are a great opportunity to make life long memories with friends.
What advice would you give students this year?
Attend as many social events and sports as possible and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there to make the most of your time at Harper. Always reach out to someone if you find yourself struggling to adapt to university life, Student Services and HASU are always here to help all students.
