During my time at Glasgow I have experienced both the school of life science and medicine, which I believe to be an advantage for this position. I understand how the schools operate, and having been a class representative for four years I realise that problems can occur. I am highly motivated to bring about changes based on these issues arising, and believe I can do so efficiently. I have witnessed previous positive changes, such as the prevention of cutting the medical school library’ opening hours, and understand the importance of such decisions. If elected I plan to regularly liaise with all school representatives, get feedback from class representatives, and ensure that I am readily available should any student encounter an issue. I am passionate and enthusiastic, and believe this is a useful asset when delivering any issues to both staff and the council. I would like to see that students’ academic wishes are fulfilled and that their experience at Glasgow is maximised.
