Shwmae! I’m Gina and I’m your SU President!
I’m from a small village in Surrey, where I studied at the local state schools. Since I was a child, music was always my hobby but as I moved through the education system it became more of a focus. Once I completed my GCSEs, I went to Godalming College to study music at A-level, which wasn’t offered at my secondary school. I had a passion for maths and physics, studying both at A-level, but my love for music was the strongest and led me to Cardiff, where I have just finished my Bachelor’s degree in Music!
When I started to think about Universities, I originally wanted to study in the United States, but that was financially unrealistic, so I decided it was vital that my course offered a year abroad. When I found out Cardiff did, I came to an open day and immediately knew this was the city for me. In 2019, the third year of my degree, I studied abroad at the University of New Hampshire in the US. After experiencing a completely different education system, I returned to Cardiff knowing I wanted to make some positive change and the position of VP Education was exactly the way to do it!
I’m so excited to continue ensuring that all students are getting the best possible experience they can, to deliver on my manifesto points, and anything else you need. Please feel free to reach out to me as I’d love to hear from you if I can help in any way.
My main priorities this year are to:
Increase the capacity of YOLO.
Bring the focus to sustainability.
Sexual health testing days & blood drives.
