About my position
I sit on the SRC and voice student health concerns, whether they’re raised by the Wellbeing Subcommittee or directly from other students. As I represent students on issues relating to wellbeing, my position has a wide remit encompassing all areas of health (mental, sexual and physical health and personal safety).
A big part of my role centres on the Wellbeing Subcommittee. I oversee and assist with the events, campaigns and themed weeks the Subcommittee are responsible for running. So much goes on so it’s hard to spotlight a few events, but we organise: de-stress events during exam time; events to meet new people; and weeks dedicated to amplifying wellbeing for all students (e.g. Wellbeing week, SHAG week and #TakeCare week).
How my position affects you
There’s no denying that student wellbeing is central to university life. My position opens up one avenue for students to voice their concerns and opinions surrounding student health support at University. Through Councils, communication with the DoWell and work within the Subcommittee, this feedback can be pushed through the right channels.
We’re here to improve your student experience and create a dynamic, supportive and inclusive community for everyone. Remember I’m here to represent you! If you’d like to work on an idea or discuss and submit a motion to Councils that relates to student health, then please get in touch (gk38@).
I’m a fourth year studying Geography and I’m from London! I ran for my position as I’d always wanted to become more involved with the representational side of wellbeing. I personally know how challenging University can be and the value of having good support systems. I wanted a role where I could reflect on my own and others' experiences and use this to make meaningful changes that actually impact student life.
Groups I lead
I chair the Wellbeing Subcommittee, so it’s my job to make sure meetings run efficiently and to oversee the projects that each representative works on. Our meetings are open to all students, no matter what year or level of experience. If you’d like to come along to see what we do, you’d be very welcome! Email me (gk38@) for details about when and where we’ll be meeting.
