aaronMy name is Aaron Martin. I am a twenty year old Glaswegian in my third year of studying BSc Environmental Stewardship at the Interdisciplinary school in Dumfries.

I am currently organising an environment fair with several other students at the university.

The management of this project requires diligence, critical thinking and devotion all of which I believe I bring to it. My main task is recruiting for volunteers, therefore I engage with people and try to get them interested and excited in the project.

I like the Dumfries campus because it is small with a distinct ambience and social context. I am pleased that a position for a school representative at the Interdisciplinary school is available however, I am perplexed to why a position has not been created before. There is a detachment between the campuses where the students here feel isolated.

I am going to attempt to connect the Dumfries campus with the main campus and bring all the benefits that main campus students receive to the students here. Although 77 miles separates the campuses the students at the Interdisciplinary school should have their opinions acknowledged and their concerns voiced.

I want to be the guy to do that.
