084Hello, I’m Erin and I’d love to represent you during my final year studying French and English Literature.

My diverse academic background means I’m familiar with many aspects of your SMLC experience, from Level 1 German to Honours options, dissertations and the all-important Year Abroad. I’ve experienced the unique challenges of a beginners language course in Russian, and studying across two schools lets me see how SMLC fits into our university as a whole.

As a class representative I’m comfortable voicing student concerns and working with your current SRC rep. I understand and promote the SRC’s vital role on campus through roles as a Freshers’ Helper and publicity team member, and I’m actively involved in societies like Amnesty. Hopefully these experiences show the engagement with university life, enthusiasm and commitment I’d bring to this position.

If elected, I will:

  • Communicate effectively with class reps and students
  • Explore opportunities to work with international student community
  • Improve support for students seeking work placements abroad
  • Request teaching support for outgoing language assistants
  • Advocate post-year abroad language support for two-language students
  • Increase students’ engagement with SRC

I’m passionate about languages and I’m really proud of our school. Let me make it even better!
