Hey guys! Thank you so much for electing me as your SU President!

I am Lucy and I am your Student Union President this year. I was your Welfare officer last year which I thoroughly enjoyed so I really appreciate being elected President this academic year (2022-2023) and getting to represent the student body for another year. This is my 5th year of living in Leeds and being involved with Leeds Beckett and it has gone so fast! From starting as a first-year sociology student who fell in love with the city, I can see my journey through Leeds as being vital to my growth as a young activist.

My time at university has made me the person I am today. As well as studying on my course I enjoyed being a course rep, a member of Leeds Beckett gymnastics team and a student ambassador. There are so many ways to meet new people and make friends through university so remember to try out new opportunities and get involved! Here, just at the Student’s Union, we have many ways you can do this too. You could join a society, get involved in a student community, take part in our volunteering opportunities, work with us on the student bar or just attend one of our many events. All further information about these opportunities can be found on the website so take deep dive and see what you discover.

My plans this year as your President is to work on improving sustainability in both the union and the university. I also want to help in making the local community more sustainable by expanding student led community projects. Through campaigning, I plan to promote a more sustainable student lifestyle that puts it back into the community and reduces landfill waste. I am also going to continue my work on the Mental Health Charter which was a project I was involved in last year created by student mental health charity Student Minds. This work will make sure the university has a holistic approach to mental health and that strategies to improve them are co-created with students.

I am very excited to see what the 2022-2023 academic year brings and to represent you for the duration of it. Remember to follow our social and don’t be afraid to get in touch! I hope to see you around campus soon.
