As a part-time student, with other responsibilities, I am keenly aware that not all student experiences are the same.

I want to make sure that EUSA not only recognises this, but also takes positive steps to make sure it acts in the best interests of its diverse part-time membership.

 

Being a Disabled person I have first-hand experience of discrimination. I am passionately committed to representing ALL part-time Edinburgh University students, and in particular to being a strong advocate for people who find themselves disadvantaged where Societal, Physical, and Union structures are set up to benefit a narrow profile of person.

 

I am a Student Rep for my subject area, so I have direct experience of gathering Student input and fighting for the interests and needs of the Students I represent.

 

I am a qualified Barrister and therefore used to and confident in advocating for the interests of people I represent in potentially intimidating situations.

 

These qualities would make me a capable and committed Part Time Student Representative.
