DAVID LEWIS – MAIDSTONE CAMPUS OFFICER
Hello there, I’m David Lewis, the new Campus Officer for Maidstone. I originally come from Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and I’ve recently graduated with first class honours in Graphic Design: Visual Communication.
I have a passion for trying new food in restaurants. I’ll rarely ever order the same meal more than once, unless I really like it. I like to go to those odd café’s you think nobody would ever go to and I also like to dine in style anywhere with a good reputation. I’ve also started collecting retro postcards that have a summery dream-like atmosphere. I enjoy listening to electro-indie music, BBC Radio 6 and following music blogs.
I became Campus Officer to create a balanced relationship with the Union and students. I want to be able to offer everything that student’s expect from their Union, I want to listen to what people want and focus my attention on areas people truly feel passionate about. I want the Union to comprise of multiple elements and not let it get lost or narrow-minded.
Not everyone is political, yes, politics is an important part of my role but I want to balance this with opportunities to create a closer community and have a good time.
I’m aiming to create spaces and events for us to socialise, I also want get a bunch of students into town and see what creative ideas could be realised while working with local business’. This year I’ll also be looking history of UCA Maidstone and the legacy we’ll leave behind.
We have a new year, a new Campus Officer and a lot of imagination and energy to get some stuff done.
