In September 2012 I became a student at Swansea Met University. I had to re-do my 1st year of university after partying a little too hard, and  after a lot of hard work still had to re-sit my dissertation when I finally made it to 3rd year. On the 15th of February 2017, I was elected as Swansea campus president. I have had an amazing 2 years, and would advise anyone to run for a position, be it a full time officer role or as a part time officer. I didn’t think I could do it, but I have, and so can you.

I never thought almost 7 years ago when I started at the university that this is where I would be now. When I failed my first year, at no point did I think I would be representing the mass of students I do now, and I am so grateful that I have had this experience. I have decided to take up an amazing opportunity for me to develop my career. The past 2 years have been a fantastic experience; I have greatly appreciated being given the opportunity.

I will be beginning my new journey on the 1st of March, but this is not goodbye. I will be back to watch Swansea as they WIN the Challenge Cup and will also be there to celebrate alongside you for our Student Led Awards and our Colours Ball.

Thank you to all students and staff that have made not only my 2 years as president but my 7 years with the university an amazing experience.

Congratulations to Lydia Courtier I know you will be fantastic and I look forward to seeing the amazing work you produce.

Thank you TSDSU, UWTSD and Swansea Met.

I wish all of you the best for the future.


Cofion -  a word I’ll end with as I leave my kindest regards and take with me a million memories.
