Student Trustee

Hey there! I want to serve as your next Student Trustee because I want to achieve the full potential of what Imperial College Union can offer. As your student union, ICU must be held accountable for how we implement our financial and physical resources, and I believe there are many ways we can positively improve your experience at Imperial. Some of my key goals for ICU include:

-Running more events that are accessible to the entire student population, including pushing for a variety of musicians to come perform at Imperial!
-Increasing the freedom and flexibility of room bookings and union personal resources (financial, advisory and project services)
-Implementing easy and relatively hassle-free ways of collecting your feedback and acting on it in a timely fashion
-Making the reimbursement and financial e-activities system of individual societies more efficient and straightforward

Personally, my past experience has amply prepared me for this role. I have worked within the Union before as Biochemistry first year Wellbeing Rep and have been trained in effective leadership and representation. I have also worked with the Union while I was organizing two major events for Finance Society, and I personally understand how frustrating the union’s financial claims system can be. In addition, my experience as Marketing Director in the Social Innovation Academy has refined my communication skills, so I can use effective methods to improve transparency and to better implement your feedback.
As your Student Trustee I will work to make our university experience better!
