Shwmae! My name is Hannah and I’m excited to be your SU President this year!
After this year I will be heading into my third year of Biomedical Sciences - where did the time go?! I grew up in a small town in Devon where I studied at Ivybridge Community College and developed my passion for education and science. My sister studied pharmacy at Cardiff and from visiting I knew Cardiff was the place for me. Thankfully I made it! I have always been one to get involved and I love meeting new people, so please do say hi!
The year before last I was heading back to university early and my friend wondered if I fancied volunteering for Freshers’ with them. I had no idea what would evolve from just a couple of weeks volunteering with the Welcome Team. Over the following year I took every opportunity to continue to be part of the Students’ Union. I volunteered as part of the Student Advice team in their Executive Committee where I met so many new people, became a part of Student Senate and President of Eat Well. All of my work and volunteering with the Students’ Union opened my eyes to the opportunity of being VP Education and the impact it has on our student experience. Now look where I am! As your SU President, I look forward to continuing to support you and ensuring you are heard.
In my spare time I love to be creative through photography and film which is why I started my YouTube channel where I will be sharing my journey with you throughout this year. I also enjoy travelling and reading, I would love to hear where you have been and what you recommend!
I have always been very passionate in ensuring all students receive high standards of education and experience. This year I will keep you updated every step of the way. What is important to you is important to me.
Please do not hesitate to come and talk to me or drop me an email anytime as it would be lovely to hear from you. Any questions or queries send them my way!
My main priorities this year are to:
- Make sure you have the best student experience.
- Make campus more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
- Enhance safety on campus.
