Why vote for Isobel Buck?
Hiya! I’m Isobel. As a current Year 1 Languages, Cultures and Linguistics Course Rep, I am immensely passionate about helping others and taking on board their feedback. I am willing to be a voice and represent students within the department.
This year I have achieved this by taking on board feedback from students to help create change. Examples of this are when a module was affected by strikes, I liaised with the module lead to create a new and more achievable assignment deadline. I also took on board feedback such as students being unsure of the differences between special considerations and extensions, to make this more accessible. I have created Google Forms so that students could communicate their feedback anonymously with me.
My experience with SUSU this year means I am well prepared to take on a further role. I have been engaged and willing to take upon opportunities. For example, I am part of the Student Events Committee, where I have used my voice to represent the opinions of students and what events they would like to see within SUSU. I also joined Jazzmanix this year, where I applied to be in the committee within my first couple of weeks. This experience as working as part of a team has enabled me to develop my interpersonal and teamwork skills.
I would love to take this experience further and use my knowledge and skills to become the next department president for the Languages, Cultures and Linguistics Department.
