Hi! My name is Jenny, and I’m currently a second year student studying international relations and international law. Almost three years ago I traded in Canada’s beautiful Rocky Mountains for Edinburgh’s historic cobbled streets, and I am absolutely loving living in the city once again. I feel so privileged to be a part of the wonderful community that is the University of Edinburgh.
I believe it is important to give back to those around me, whether through volunteering for local non-profits or fundraising for charities close to my heart. I truly enjoy being able to help others, and want to continue doing so in every way possible. Because of this, I have decided to run for the position of Social and Political Science undergrad representative.
As your representative, I will aim to:
Enhance and reform student mental health support systems.
Improve the availability of study spaces around campus, especially during revision periods.
Improve resources for student carers, such as assured access to lecture recordings for when attendance isn’t possible.
Strengthen communication and relationship building between staff and students.
Refurbish worn down areas around campus, and make our environments look good.
Support sustainability efforts across the university.
Most importantly, I will endeavour to bring forth any of your comments, concerns or ideas for our school and wider university. .
I believe unity is the most effective way to implement change. To achieve any of these goals we must work together, and I hope to represent SPS in the coming year to do our part in improving our university community.
