Hello! I'm Des Ibekwe and I'm running to be the Equality, Liberation and Access Officer for the academic year 2017/18. I'm currently in my final year studying Law at the University. I have particular interest in the role as the difficulties faced by many liberations identities is amplified at Bristol in particular due to the lack of diversity in the student body as a whole. For this reason, it's important to have minority interests represented at the union level.
I am the current publicity officer for Pro Bono Society and a representative for Amicus ALJ. I have also previously been a Secretary of the African Caribbean Association. These experiences have all contributed to make me a capable candidate.
My priorities as ELA officer are centered around Visibility and Proactivity. Over the past year there have been incidents that the university has failed to deal with adequately.
