Linktree | Manifesto (PDF) | St.Ation Interview
I'm Emily, and I'm running to be your next Director of Events and Services because I fully believe I can bring a positive change to our Union. I've been a student here for the past 5 years of which I have loved every second so I am familiar with everything this town has to offer.
I am passionate about music, the arts, working with others, and making sure people are happy and safe. I want to be able to ensure that all students make the most out of their time here and have access to everything the Union has to offer.
I have experience leading teams, organising large events (such as a Hall Ball), collaborating with others, and working to tight deadlines. I'm a people person, through and through. I'm creative, and I love coming up with new ideas for things.
My key focuses for change revolve around the following topics: The Union; Involvement; Safety and Accessibility. Some ideas include:
- Revamping the BOP
- More live music events
- Working closely with societies on having more workshops and events
- Efficient booking processes for all Union spaces
- More outlets
- More accessibility for disabled students
- Promoting the Union's use of Ask for Angela
- Collaborating with local businesses and creators
- Regular student input
You can find more of my ideas in detail in my 'minifesto'.
My goal is to help improve the quality of experience at the Union and ensure that anyone who visits any event feels safe and happy. I value the feedback and input from the student community, and I want to establish a clear line of communication between myself and any student. I also believe that it's important to work closely with student societies and groups to further understand what it is that the student community want to experience, and what they want to see happen in our Union.
I know that as your next DoES, I can bring new changes and positive experiences for each student in this town and will do my best to make sure of it.
