I started at UCLan in 2017 and I studied Interior Design for 4 years at an undergraduate level. In my 2nd and 3rd year I was elected as the Black Asian and Minority Ethnics students representative. In 2020 I won the ABCD (Above and Beyond the Call of Duty) award for my work planning our Black History Month and successfully working alongside the University to hire our first black biracial student counsellor.
My experience in the Students' Union has greatly impacted my university experience in a positive way and I hope to further develop and enhance my skills as your Vice President Welfare this year
