Hi everyone

For those that do not know me, my name is Sam, and I am your newly elected Social Sciences and Humanities School Officer. First, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for me in the March 2022 SU elections. I am excited to get started and work toward fulfilling my manifesto points. I will especially be working towards setting up the academic feedback box in the Waterfront building.

So, a little bit about me…I am in my thirties, I love photography, reading crime thrillers in my spare time, and animals. I have quite the menagerie at home. I am also a huge Marvel and Harry Potter fan. I have multiple chronic health conditions, which makes me passionate about disability rights as well as support within the university. For the last 6 years, I have written a chronic illness travel blog, to help support others, and encourage them to not let their disabilities hold them back from travelling and participating in activities.

This September I will be starting my third year at the university. I am a part-time psychology student, and this year I will be taking a mixture of levels. As School Officer, I am there to support the course reps within the school, as well as be your voice on campus and at Student Council.

I have really enjoyed my time within societies and would encourage you to consider joining a society or putting yourself up for society elections for a committee role. It has allowed me to meet new people, form new friendships, as well as strengthen my skills. Being a part of a society has also given me opportunities to destress from university work and grow my confidence. I love helping to think of new events and putting them on for students to enjoy. I have previously been Secretary of the Students with Disabilities Society and I am currently President of the Psychology Society.

If you see me around campus, please do come and say hello. If you have something you need to speak to me about, and you do not see me around campus, please do not hesitate to contact me either by emailing me at or by messaging me through my Facebook officer page

Once set up there will also be an anonymous feedback box, which you can use if you are not comfortable speaking to your course rep or myself directly.
