Hi all, I'm America, your Wellbeing Officer for 2020/21. I’m optimistic about the year ahead and the changes that can be made within The Union and the University. I love helping people out and I hope that I can help you feel connected and heard within your university life.
I’m from a minority ethnic background and have had my fair share of difficult times, so I know what it’s like to feel a bit out of the loop with stuff at times. I’ll be available to help you whenever you need it — just shoot me a quick e-mail or message on social media, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I hope that a socially distanced campus won't get in the way of socialising and network building, but if you feel there’s something that’s missing, or that something needs to be done differently, just let me know. I hope you can feel comfortable and get stuck into this uni year with confidence that there are all kinds of support that The Union can offer you.
