In my role as Vice President Community, I work directly on matters relating to students as local residents, including housing, the environment, sustainability, transport, local council and citizenship. I also contribute to and inform University strategy on local community and sustainability issues.

  • I’m Rosheen Wallace, your Vice President Community for 2019/2020. I studied French and Linguistics, and I’m from Kirkcaldy in Fife (birthplace of Adam Smith and Gordon Brown, fun fact).

    As part of my degree I went on a year abroad, which I spent working as a British Council English Assistant teaching primary school children in France. This not only gave me a renewed appreciation of language learning, but also gave me a valuable experience in making a difference to communities outside of the student bubble. Coming back from a year abroad also made me aware of the extra strain this can put on finding accommodation in Edinburgh, and being able to represent students on housing issues in particular is one of the things that pushed me to do this role!

     

    In my spare time over the past four years I have been part of a highland dance school, volunteered for a local charity, and become a keen mountaineering enthusiast!
