Hello! My name is Heather and I am your President for 2017/2018. Last year I was your Senior Student Representative and President of Societies and Citizenship.
Prior to becoming one of your sabbatical officers I studied BA(Hons) Politics and Sociology at the University and was an active volunteer in our Students' Association and the National Union of Students in Scotland.
In 2014 I won the award of ‘Activist of the Year’ at the SAUWS Awards for my work with the Women’s group and in 2016 was awarded a Strategic level Volunteer Recognition Award from UWS for my role as Disabled Students’ Officer in NUS Scotland. Both of which I would never have achieved without the support and opportunities given to me by SAUWS and by coming to study at UWS.
I am completely honoured to be the first women elected to SAUWS President and hope to inspire others to follow.
Over the next year I hope to learn more about the way in which UWS students live and how to make your student experience at UWS fun, safe and secure.
I hope to achieve these objectives by:
- Undertake a student housing survey to find out about the living arrangements of UWS Students and how we can help make them better.
- Work alongside NUS Scotland on the Scottish Government's Student Support Review to get the best outcome for students at UWS.
- Look at how SAUWS can increase and further develop its Advice and Case worker service.
- Celebrate ten years of SAUWS by holding events to mark the occasion.
