More about Sophie
What do you study?
3rd year BA History Student
What SU run events and activities have you been a part of?
During my time at Winchester I have been a member of the Alternative Music, History, and Veggie and Vegan societies. I am also the StAR for my course and a regular attendee at Ctrl Alt Delete!
What are your top Manifesto points?
Promoting inclusivity of within all areas of the SU (particularly under-represented groups such as postgraduates, mature students and student parents)
Ensure society committees are well-supported throughout the year with access to a range of training and development opportunities
Ensuring StARs scheme continues to grow, and ensuring there is a place for wellbeing concerns linked to studies to be addressed within SSLCs
What made you run in the Elections to become an officer?
As a committee member for several societies, I decided to take the next logical step to run for Student Officer. I wanted to run in the elections to show that you don’t have to be in a large society or sports team to be elected into a role at the SU, and also because the role seemed like a great way to get more involved with representing student voice and improving the activities and events on offer here at Winchester.
What’s your favourite thing about Winchester?
What has been your proudest moment during your student journey?
What do you like doing when you aren’t being a Winchester SU Officer?
Outside of university and the student union, I enjoy reading, going to gigs and enjoying a walk in some of the many local nature reserves! (The site gets bonus points if I get to walk through a field of sheep or cows!)
