Hi everyone! I'm Izzy and I'm your Activities Officer for 2018/19. Find out a bit more about me below and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions for me!
Course: BSc Applied Psychology.
One thing most people don’t know about me: The true extent of my allergies… I’m allergic to some really odd things, like coriander!
What inspired you to become an Executive Officer?
I’ve been a volunteer since starting at Leicester and have been on a Committee for all 3 years of my time here. Last year, my student group (LUTheatre) was facing a lot of problems with the redevelopment and I ended up getting really heavily involved with the project. As Activities Officer, I want to use that experience to be able to advocate for all student groups who will be affected by the redevelopment over the next couple of years, to help groups to keep growing and flourishing despite this challenge!
What do you hope to achieve this year?
My focus for this year is to be able to provide support to all of our student groups, to tackle any issues that they face and continue to celebrate their successes! I’ll also be working to improve training and support for student groups, as well as creating easier access to volunteering opportunities.
