Hi everyone, I’m Anna and I’m your Students Union President for this year! Last year I was your first ever Societies & Development Officer and I loved working with all the students into societies so much I decided to run to be your president so I could work with even more of you. I graduated in 2018 from a Mathematics degree and whilst I was a student I was heavily involved with societies. Last year during my role I got into Cheerleading and competed alongside the Level 1 team, it was an amazing experience and I hope to continue with them this year. If there’s ever anything you need please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!
The President is The Union’s lead officer who has a chief role in representing students at Manchester Met and they line-manage the other Officers. They have a huge say on the direction we take on key issues and campaigns aimed at improving the overall student experience. The President champions the work of The Union, leads our public image and is a governor at the University to influence key decisions for students.
It’s 2020- where did all that time go??
The past few months have been busy for me, from attending lots of meetings with the university to making progress on my projects, I’ve definitely not been bored!
I’ve managed to organise for new free sanitary dispensers in all the toilets in the SU, part of my goal is to make sure everyone knows that anyone of any gender can menstruate and that period poverty can affect us all due to this. I’m also working towards events for this term including a roller disco and a self-defence seminar! Keep an eye out for exciting things coming up.
