As you can imagine, my work this year has been heavily impacted by COVID-19 and this has therefore been the focus of the majority of what I have been working on. Improving the support available for our entire student body, whilst also working to improve the awareness of and accessibility to these services and support remains my number one priority and is the driving factor behind everything I do. My main objectives outlined as based upon the manifesto I was elected upon are found below.
