Description

Hiya! I’m Aashna and I will be your new Vice President Wellbeing for this year. I spent my four years at Heriot-Watt studying Business Management split between the Dubai campus and here in Edinburgh. Ever since my transfer, the Student Union has had me hooked! I began as Head of International Student Committee and kick-started an annual international fair called “Global Day” for which I won Volunteer of the Year and Liberation Event of the Year at the Volunteer Awards! Then I was a Freshers Helper and elected as Equality and Diversity Executive in 2016. My plans as VP include helping all students with issues including mental health and problems surrounding equality and diversity, welfare and liberation groups, regardless of disability, gender identity, race, religion or sexual orientation. In short, I’m your person to contact if you have trouble, if you need support or you just want someone to chat to! Feel free to pop by the Student Union if you have any questions or drop me a quick email anytime! Hopefully you’re just as excited as I am to see what this year has in store!
