What do I do?
As VP Wellbeing, I'm the first point of contact for student equality & diversity issues and liberation campaigns. I chair the Student Wellbeing Group and work closely with the students that attend it to advocate for positive change in issues facing students identifying as LGBTQ+, Women, International, Black Asian & Minority Ethnic, and Disabled.
I also work with this group to find solutions to issues that impact the wellbeing of all students, including but not limited to mental health. As well as this, I work to support the Advice Hub. As a Member of Parliament alongside the 2 MPs from Student Wellbeing Group, I help drive positive change brought forward by its members.
I work closely with the University’s Wellbeing Services and sit on the Equality and Diversity Committee. I'm also a member of the Student Union Trustee Board and am nominated to attend various University committees.
Tell Us About Yourself
I am so excited to meet you all and work to enhance our student experience here at Heriot-Watt. I have extensive volunteer experience with the Sports Union over the past 5 years, on Netball committees, as a Sports Union Lead Ambassador, and on the Sports Union Executive as elected Charities Officer.
I have such a passion for all things wellbeing, and I aim to bring a fresh perspective and experience in hosting creative events! (That and another warm, welcoming and approachable face to the FTO team!)
I really want to continue to destigmatize wellbeing issues by encouraging and supporting informal student to student conversation. I believe we can greatly enhance our student wellbeing experience by creating more spaces for students to communally voice their worries!
This year I have BIG plans, including:
- Creating a more inclusive, open and supportive community by encouraging conversation about 'taboo' topics
- Implement cyber harassment policy
- Improving the relationships between all students and their personal tutors
