Contact Jack here.
I first got involved when I became a class rep last year and after going to HISA Con I felt a burning desire to become a part of the great HISA team and contribute as much as I could to the outstanding work that HISA has been doing in representing students and improving their university experience.
If I could achieve one thing that would be creating a lasting legacy that would forever enhance the student experience.
My icons are far and wide and range from across many cultural fields, but I guess my academic icon is the Historian Peter Frankopan, who is not only one of the world’s top historians and professors, but a brilliant human being who inspires his students to achieve great things.
My main hobbies are sport, music, cooking, reading and travelling. I play a range of different sports such as swimming, horse riding, cricket, archery and mountain climbing. I also love playing the piano and going to gigs and festivals.
My favourite memory from UHI is having granted the opportunity to meet the amazing people that I met.
Gosh, there aren’t that many! I guess it’s after putting a smile on someone’s face who really needed that smile.
Being able to walk and cycle in the complete wilderness, as well as climbing mountains and surviving.
I will ensure that students are equipped with the necessary tools to make their university experience a memorable one from ensuring that the student voice is present and heard at the highest echelons of UHI to creating exciting events that tickle the imagination.
