JESSICA THOMAS – CANTERBURY CLUBS & SOCIETIES OFFICER CANDIDATE[OTHER CANTERBURY CLUBS & SOCIETIES OFFICER CANDIDATES: NONE]
I’m a conceptual artist, with a love of Jazz! I like to plan things (even sketchbook pages) so I have to be quite organised, but it allows me to do lots of things efficiently. I’m also rather opinionated, and will always fight for what I believe in.
IF ELECTED, HOW WOULD YOU CREATE MORE OF A COMMUNITY?
I will encourage students to engage with groups of people who share their interests, through clubs and societies – it is beneficial for all clubs and societies to have their own online network to communicate more efficiently. It is also important to be supportive of events run by the SU and help promote these, as they will bring people together.
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS?
I’ve always been a great participator in extra curricular activities, which is why Clubs and Societies are important to me. I want to increase the opportunity to join and create clubs and societies, and improve on the ease of entering and managing the system we have for doing so.
HOW WOULD YOU INSPIRE STUDENTS TO HAVE A VOICE?
I believe the Student Reps are a fantastic way to communicate students’ opinions – there should be a stronger link between the Council and the Reps, in order for the Council to improve regularly.
