Vice President Candidate:
Proposer: Kirsty Sheppard
Seconder: Megan Newman
What policies would you deliver if you became Students’ Union Vice President?
Other changes I would make to NUA include…
Creating better student support. I will lower the wait time for students to access counselling and make student support more accessible.
I will also create a wider range of societies. I will make societies more affordable, enter competitions and have socials more regularly to create a bigger sense of community among the participants of each society.
What is the main change you want to see at NUA?
I would like to organise more university wide events. Such as winter and summer balls. This will create a bigger community spirit across NUA. As well as, help students meet other people from other courses and years. Plus they’ll be fun!!!
What skills and experience do you bring to the role that make you the best candidate?
I have been a student rep across my 3 years at NUA, so I have experience listening to students and actioning the changes they want to see. I’ve loved this role as I’ve been able to make changes to my course and see how they helped my peers.
This year I helped bring back the Yoga and Wellbeing society to NUA. Lots of students have been taking part in yoga and having fun!
I have always worked in jobs or volunteered in roles that involve working with people and helping them. Such as, working at my old high school as textiles technician and working on NCS Summer Camps. These allowed me to develop my interpersonal skills, confidence and ability to motivate others.
What would you want to be remembered for after you completed your year as Vice President?
I would love to be remembered as a vice president that gave NUA students memories of joy that will be cherished. And one who supported you, listened to you and made you happy
