Hi everyone! I started this role towards the end of last semester, in late December, but I have already very much enjoyed my time representing the transgender community. I have been attending meetings and talking to members of the Trans and Nonbinary society surrounding their experience as trans students within the university. It has been very empowering to know that I can take these issues “higher up” and hopefully resolve them – within this semester, I hope to make this empowerment more widespread and well known, as I believe that every student should feel safe and not need to worry about issues regarding their identity.
This month is LGBT+ history month, and I am pleased to see that the SU is holding many events for this. I will personally be attending the LGBT+ wellbeing fair as a stallholder for the Transgender and Nonbinary society, and I will be trying to go to other events between lectures and meetings.
I really look forward to working with everyone and can’t wait to give a statement with more “I’ve done this!” rather than hopes and aims!
