Vote #1 EMILY SMITH - Vice President Student Activities. Bringing FRESH faces and FRESH ideas to Hertfordshire Students’ Union
I’m Emily, here to help everyone make the most of their university experience. Always involved with the Students’ Union, I have a keen interest in Ultimate Frisbee, having been elected Social and Women’s Captain of the team. Plus, I was Founder and Chairman of a society two years running and an employee of the SU for three. So activities and getting involved is as important to me as it is to you.
|This is my time to give back to the university and make a difference to its students. What I offer is based on my previous and invaluable life and work-based experiences. I’m a person who loves to bring about change and move projects forward, never leaving a task incomplete.
||Vote for me because I get things done! I have worked on international sporting events, been a house mother to 60 international students and won an award for being a highly active member of a twinning association. As VP I will introduce many fresh ideas to build links between charities, plus create opportunities and initiatives to improve students’ skills and enhance their CVs.
It’s unfair students are being forced to pay the total fee upfront before being able to budget for all other outgoings.
I’ll be broadening the range of charities we work with on campus, and taking on a more ambitious programme of involvement. I want students to help as many good causes as possible in as many ways as they can.
With so many societies at Herts it’s important they are promoted equally and given the same opportunities. Alongside the Societies Forum, I will meet ALL societies and ensure I tailor my support for them. As a highly creative individual, I’ll help improve the profile of all societies and teams.
I want Herts to be the first university in the UK to have each of its sports team supporting this LGBT campaign, which highlights the need for everyone to be accepted EXACTLY as they are.
As Elected Officers, we’ll work together for a joined-up way of thinking, providing better communications, improving the range and availability of resources for students and making sure everyone is heard.
