HISA is giving me the opportunity to make a positive impact not only on my own but also my peers' student experience.
I love being able to use the HISA platform to influence university-wide decisions with students’ voice, enhance students’ educational experience, and help increase students’ employability.
This is very hard to choose. Employability would really be up there. I want to create more opportunities for our students to boost their CVs while studying at UHI. The dream is to graduate and be the number one applicant for any job in the Highlands and Islands.
I can’t wait to explore all the different approaches we can take to this and how not only UHI can offer work experience but also HISA.
One of my icons is definitely Angela Davis. She advocates for gender equity and shows how race, class and gender contribute to this inequality. I would recommend to anyone to read her book Women, Race and Class.
I love going to the beach, swimming, surfing and sailing. I like playing the piano on rainy days, iced lattes and making Italian food.
This is a very hard pick after having studied at UHI for so many years. I don’t think I can pin it down to just one memory.
The network I was able to be a part of has been incredible. Through my time at UHI I had the opportunity to meet so many different people with different backgrounds which is fantastic. There have been so many opportunities for knowledge exchange through different events.
So far probably being elected HISA President for this Academic Year. Elections this year have really been an emotional rollercoaster but also one of the best experiences so far.
Getting the phone call after travelling 5 days and visiting 7 campuses in total during the campaign period was probably one of my proudest moments yet.
I love being able to live so close to nature. There is a beach 5 minutes from my flat where I love to go swimming, surfing and sailing. The Highlands and Islands have such a great sense of community and I love being able to positively impact on this community.
I want to work on offering you more options to build your CV and employability through your time at UHI through more focused workshops and volunteering/ work opportunities within your institution.
I want you to feel part of the big network UHI is and help you make contacts across the whole partnership.
