Hey everyone! I'm Becca and I'm your Women's Officer for 2016/17. I am Greek-South African and grew up in Johannesburg before moving to the UK for secondary school. I'm a first year BA International Relations and Politics student. You might see me in and around a few societies, particularly the Feminist, Mixology, Labour and Model United Nations societies!
I decided to run for women's officer because although I believe we've come a long way in the last few decades in regards to inequality issues, I think we still have some way to go. My main focus this year is improving support structures in place for sexual assault and harassment victims and working on the universities' policy towards this. Similarly, I'm hoping to run a campaign centred around healthy relationships and preventing domestic abuse within the university. Overall, I am keen to promote, support, celebrate and protect female and non-binary students at Oxford Brookes.
I am always just a message away so don't hesitate to contact me with anything, relevant to my role as women's officer or not as I may be able to signpost you in the right direction. I'm available on multiple platforms listed below.
Looking forward to a productive and fruitful year.
