Advice and Information
I’m Chrissy, the Advice & Policy Co-ordinator at the SU. I’m a Politics and International Studies Graduate from the University of Warwick and I also have an MA in International Development. As a student I loved getting involved with my Students’ Union by being a member of countless societies and I enjoyed being a Student Ambassador and representing my cohort on a student-staff liaison committee during my MA. From then on I knew that I wanted to support other students through their higher education!
My role at the SU is to provide independent, impartial and confidential advice to students on a range of different issues; academic issues such as academic appeals, student complaints, fitness to practise and extenuating circumstances; health and wellbeing and any other issues that might be affecting your studies.
Away from work, I’m such a foodie and it would be a dream to go on either the Great British Bake-off or Masterchef. I love Harry Potter and have been to the Warner Brothers’ Studios tour twice (I cried as soon as I got there both times). My two absolute favourite TV shows are Game of Thrones and Stranger Things. I will also never tire of watching Friends! I’m also a fan of sloths, stationery and chocolate. When I’m not at work, I’m usually either at home doing some baking, swimming or with my head buried in my wedding planning journal.
I am a mature student who is currently in my second year of Sociology. I have a wealth of experience in working with vulnerable adults. I started working for the Students’ Union during the summer as Advice and Information Assistant and have developed a good understanding of the problems facing students, from academic life to personal life. My aim is to support the students throughout their degree in order to have the best possible experience.
My long-term goal after completing my degree is to go travelling around Europe to explore different cultures and historical cities, my ultimate goal is to visit an active volcano. My favourite things include reading, petting animals, napping, petting more animals, gaming, thinking about petting animals, tattoos, planning my next nap, watching anime and music.
My favourite author is Alison Weir and my hero is Son Goku. I currently have 6 acorns in my backpack. if I had one wish it would be to make all dogs age slowly, so they can live until you pass on.
