Here is my manifesto:

Student Council is the heart of policy here at Bristol SU and we NEED students to be fully engaged with it in order to fully reflect the thoughts and feelings of students

Although I’m a first year I have engaged with democracy on a range of levels:

  • Nationally through the British Youth Council as Trustee and Vice Chair
  • Locally as a member of Youth Parliament
  • In education as a course rep, school rep, democratic standards committee member and society exec
  1. Democracy drives - I will champion a two-week campaign before student council to ramp up attendance
  2. Union tube - I will run a Bristol SU YouTube vlog to keep up with elected officials and create accessible Student Council promo
  3. Rep net - I will unite the student rep community through networking events with external speakers, union officials and the university
  4. Motion to motion - I will lead a campaign dedicated to increasing motion submissions to student council. How? With the incentive of free Motion tickets and other goodies!
