International Students' Officer - Meghna Jeetah
I am the International Students' Officer here at Bristol SU I work with the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education Officers and the Student Living Officer to ensure that international students' interests are represented within the University and the union.
Here is my manifesto:
Hello! I’m Meghna, a second-year Law student. I am from Mauritius, a little island in the Indian Ocean, which is complemented by a multi-ethnic and cultural population.
As a second-year international undergraduate at Bristol, I’ve personally experienced that settling in as an international student isn’t always easy. For instance, having to deal with opening student bank accounts to experiencing the famous fresher’s week can be quite overwhelming. I also hold the view that international students are under-represented in many aspects of University, for which I am willing to change.
I plan to:
My aim is to create an environment where international relationships can flourish even more! No one should feel isolated; just because you haven’t grown up here, it doesn’t mean that you don’t belong!
