Jackie Appiah-Kubi
Hey everyone! My name is Jackie Appiah-Kubi, I am a first year Politics and International Relations student and I am running to be your next ACS President. I believe I possess the qualities of a leader to direct the society to greatness.The ACS is an amazing society in creating a safe space for African Caribbean students on campus. As president, I would like to take the society to the next level.

Why vote for me? I am passionate about raising awareness of issues affecting African Caribbean students on campus. I consider myself an online activist as I have a an online blog discussing issues surrounding the African Caribbean experience. Additionally, I was an elected member of the Islington Youth Council. This role allowed me to liaise with council members and organise events. I organised an event called ‘Youth Fest’ which enabled me to showcase educational and cultural opportunities offered within my borough. Being a counciller allowed me to showcase my leadership skills through a commitment to political issues surrounding young people. I was also Head Girl in 6th Form, which meant that I participated in senior leadership meetings being the connection between students and teachers. I believe that I can transfer these skills that I have learnt to the role of ACS president.

If you vote for me I promise to listen to your concerns, create stronger a community within the ACS and improve the society’s prospects.

The impacts of COVID-19 have affected us all this year. I think it’s time we made up for what we’ve lost.

I am running for ACS President because I want push our society onto a greater platform, making it more well renowned among sponsors and ACS’. I believe I possess the skills to take ACS to the next level and have already taken active steps to do so.

Regardless of the challenges, I used my connections to organise events to ensure first years can interact. This is a testament to the drive and desire I have to create a supportive community where we can all academically, socially and personally develop.

As a well-rounded individual with previous experience as a prefect and running successful business since age 15, I am well-versed in teamwork, finances and marketing. As your President I can support all other roles within the committee effectively.

I intend to provide more events like Take Me Out – an event we all throughly enjoyed this year, and bring new events to the table, like UoL ACS Festival in the summer.
My aims:
•Restore the family feel within the ACS.
•Improve our outreach to the community – working with 6th forms and black-owned initiatives.
•Form an alliance with other top universities to increase visibility in sectors such as creative and entertainment, & expand our ACS’ reach.

By gaining an insight into how COVID has impacted members of the ACS, as your President I will know what YOU want from us.
You will not be disappointed.
