About My Role
The International Students Officer role is to represent international student’s interests
and to campaign on any relevant issues.
Shwmae everyone! I am Megha Roy, a second-year international student of B.A( Journalism,
media and Sociology) from India and this year honored to be your International Student
Officer. I am presently a proud member of the Cardiff Women 1 tennis team and has been
the Sports Executive of Cardiff Athletic union in my very first year at Cardiff.
Let me share my story with you all. My journey that commenced as a shy toddler clinging
behind my mother and hesitantly entering the school premises, saw me evolve into an
outgoing, sporty, compassionate teenager who shouldered the responsibility of being the
tennis captain from standard three and winning the inter-school tennis championship several
times. Dramatics, debating, participating in social work, writing for the school magazine, and
conducting school assemblies kept happening to me. The coming years saw me as the House
vice-captain and eventually the Head-girl of that very institution. It taught me the importance
of teamwork and leading by setting positive examples, lending a helping hand, and standing
by truth irrespective of the outcome. I have immense love for animals and I strongly
champion their cause being the doting sister to two beautiful furbabies. Having led my high
school as the Head girl, I strongly emphasize listening to the student's voice and articulate
them well. I work diligently as a team member and independently as well. I value my social
responsibilities and have worked with orphan children’s NGO and animal rescue organizations
My main priorities for the year include:
- Handhold (albeit virtually though for the time being) the international students to
ensure their smooth induction in the academic programs and life in general in close
association with the International office.
- Organize regular collaborative online events between different international student
societies to gel over music and fun activities, till the time we cannot have on the
- Pursue the University regarding more international scholarships, as it has become all
the more relevant in these difficult days of the Covid19 pandemic.
- Ensure Dropbox for all kinds of suggestions to keep things friendly and interactive.
Let us keep alive Cardiff’s legacy of the unbiased, inclusive, and empathetic student union.
Let’s turn the ‘HOPE’ into reality
