Hello! I'm a fourth year Social Policy & Politics student running to be your Political Activities Representative for the year 2021-2. 

If elected I will:

  • Support motions and campaigns to reduce the negative impact of the ongoing pandemic on students, including those for rent and tuition fee reductions.
  • Consistently attend Student Council and support motions to support social justice, human rights, environmental sustainability, and student support.
  • Push the university to do more to improve acessibility for disabled students and do all I can to assist with motions to that end.
  • Push for greater awareness of student council meetings to improve student representation.
  • Encourage political societies to hold more joint events & campaigns

My previous student representation experience includes being the Disabled Students Officer for Edinburgh Labour Students for the years 2018-19 and 2020-21 & being on the committee of Democrats Overseas from 2019 to 2021.

Thank You.
