As part of the Support Zone, I am here to make your time at university the best it can be and make sure you are supported with your studies and your personal life. Whether this involves raising mental health awareness, increasing accessibility or anything else you may need, myself and the Support Zone are here for all students and are always happy to talk to you about whatever we can do to help.
I am a PhD student working at the Surrey Space Centre, but I’ve been at the University for over 6 years and am dedicated to improving student life as much as possible. As a student with both physical and mental health conditions, I understand the importance of having someone fighting on your side, and it’s my goal to be that person for any student who needs it over the next year.
3 Priorities for the Year
- To improve accessibility awareness among students and faculty members.
- Encourage more training for faculty members in matters of disability and neurodiversity.
- Set up peer support schemes within societies and academic departments.
My Favourite Surrey Students Union Event
SHAG week! Destigmatising sex and sexual health is such an important part of maintaining an open minded, healthy and empowered student body.
If you had advice to a new student what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! A lot of new students can be shy about approaching someone if they’re experiencing a problem, but the Students’ Union, the Centre for Wellbeing, the Disability and Neurodiversity team as well as many other services on campus are all very welcoming and are great at supporting students who may be having a hard time. We all want to help you as much as we can, so please do drop us an email and we will make sure you get the support you need.
