1. Why did you get involved with the SU?
I got involved with the SU because my part-time job during the final year of my studies was to organise events and trips for international students - a brilliant way for language students and students wanting to learn English to be able to come together.
2. If you could achieve one thing in your year as an officer, what would it be?
My aim is to provide more trips through the SU for anyone wanting to explore the UK, Europe or further afield while they’re studying here in Manchester.
3. Who’s your icon?
My icon is Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m inspired by his resilience, leadership skills and, above all, sheer determination on and off the pitch.
4. Away from student politics, what do you like to do?
I love playing football and learning languages. Those are my two greatest passions in life. Being both physically and mentally active is important for our wellbeing at university.
5. What’s your best memory of being a student at UoM?
My best memory was the first day that I moved to Brussels in September 2017. Spending an extended period of time abroad is a great way to immerse yourself fully in a new language!
6. What’s your proudest moment?
My proudest moment is being elected as International Students’ Officer this year because after going on my residence abroad in Belgium and Spain, I realised I have a passion for internationalism and want to be able to offer many opportunities to our international students whilst they’re studying at UoM.
7. What are you going to do for me, the average UoM student, to improve my everyday life?
I will ensure you have as many opportunities as possible in sport and language while you’re studying at UoM. My aim is that every single student leaves UoM having felt welcome and a part of our diverse, international community.
