Sophie Lewis

SoSS MP

WHAT DO I DO?

I am the School Member of Parliament (School MP) for School of Social Sciences - there is one School MP elected by each School (EGIS, EPS, MACS, SoSS & TEX).

As a School MP, I support the Vice President Education and work with them to fix issues faced by students to improve academic life at Heriot-Watt. I meet regularly with School Officers and Class Reps at Academic Congress, and attend School Officer Meetings every other week to drive positive change and feed these issues to Parliament. I also help ensure Academic Congress runs smoothly.

Working closely with Class Reps and School Officers is a really important part of my role. I work to increase the awareness of these positions within your School to make sure students are aware of these structures, how to contact them, and how to get the most out of their School Officers and Class Reps.

In this role I might also attend University Committees and Working Groups.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF

Hi! I am a 4th-year Economics student and previously was the Economics School Officer. I am looking forward to getting more involved in the union, representing SOSS students across multiple university constituencies.

Having been the Economics School Officer last year, I feel I have a good insight into how different committees are run and the problems facing SOSS students.
