What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?

I would bring experience from being in the role for the last year, and an enthusiasm to build on this experience. I have two children aged 5 and 2 and can relate to the struggles of juggling a busy study schedule with the extra caring demands at home.  It's tough to get that work-life balance, and with caring responsibilities, that essential support and time for yourself as well!  I hope I can represent your voice and need for understanding from fellow students for another year.

What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?

I hope to continue to be a strong advocate and voice representing all students who also have to consider their caring responsibilities alongside study commitments.

Please summarise why students should vote for you.

I am friendly, approachable and passionate about the need for representation of those with caring responsibilities on the student union.
