Why join the council?
I wanted to join the council to continue my representation of the student groups, neurodiverse and early career people at WES. I believe this is important to have all members represented at the highest level of any society so we can learn from the largest variety of experience and background. I hope to not just put forward issues but offer solutions and then feedback to improve the student groups. For my own development a role of the council will challenge me to become an effective WES member; increase my understanding of society working and my communication skills which will benefit me in my role as Student Groups Liaison Officer.
