I am a young Black woman who knows that a person’s worth is not measured by external apprearances but by the content of their character. I admit that there is need to mitigate the negative effects of prejudices based on race but I disagree with hatred or vindictiveness. A good attitude and the spirit of brotherhood define a good leader not his or her race while good governance is a result of freedom of expressions and mutual respect not domination or control.
Hello, I’m Meredith and I am your Women’s officer! I am extremely passionate about mental health and improving the support at Brookes for sexual trauma. In my free time, I like to do yoga, reading and baking! I hope to be able to improve Brookes well-being in terms of more support services being advertised on the Brookes website, promoting and advertising Say it Loud so more female students feel comfortable in speaking out about their experiences and working alongside the union in hopes to make Brookes a safer place!
My names Phoebe, my pronouns are she/they and I am the new LGBTQ+ officer. I identify as queer in both terms of my sexuality and gender. I am a first year studying occupational therapy, which general role is to help recovering patients in a healthcare setting, I really want to go into children’s mental health in the future.
As the new portfolio officer I want to improve LGBTQ education and history within the university to reduce stigma’s as well as help shine a light on support resources to help with matters such as dysphoria and identity that students may be dealing with. Additionally I want to help present sports teams/societies as more inclusive towards the community as sports has its own stigma’s and boxes we all think need to be fulfilled to fit in. I look forward to help make the university a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community and working with all the other amazing officers.
Hi all! I am delighted to be representing you and your environmental concerns for the year! Thank you so much if you voted for me! My name is Tannah, I’m 30 and I’m currently studying LLM International Law, which is intense but I love it. I identify as Queer and use she/they pronouns interchangeably.
I’m from Oxford so I know the city well and already have some links with local environmental initiatives but am always looking to get to know more connections. Outside of studying and trying to make the world a better place, I enjoy vegan cooking, swimming, gardening and reading (Margaret Atwood is my fave). You’re more likely to find me at a farmers market or a protest rather than the pub, but I’m no stranger to a G&T! I’m also a big champion for mental health and wellbeing and am especially keen on environmental initiatives that make us feel good, which is much needed in these strange pandemic times.
Please take a look at my manifesto which outlines some of my ideas and goals for the year. I’m very open to being contacted directly by students and a big shout out to students from underrepresented groups, I am here to listen to your concerns and ideas. I aim to build an inclusive, collaborative and active community of student environmentalists so if you’re keen to get involved please get in touch!
I’m Wojciech Yuri Lewinski, your International Students Portfolio Officer. As your representative, I want to first and foremost make sure you feel comfortable, safe and secure at the University. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything! I’ll try to assist ASAP.
I major in Japanese and I also happen to be the president of the Japanese Society, so you’ll either find me at uni cramming loads of grammar or on a Japanese Soc event.
Funfact: Privately I love ice skating and I never shut up about it. Excercise caution!
Hey everyone! I’m Xiao and I’m a final year Law student. As your BIPOC officer, this year I aim to raise awareness and embrace change through education and mental health support. I also want to make sure BIPOC voices are heard and amplified, whilst ensuring that my BIPOC sisters and brothers are looked after.
I’m currently a Campus Champion for Bright Network, Campus Ambassador for ICAEW, Student and Brand Ambassador for Brookes. Representing these organisations allow me to be a part of giving BIPOCs equal chances to succeed compared to non-BIPOC peers. I also write for Collective Conversationz, an Oxford-based virtual magazine focused on combatting injustice and strive for equality.
This year I’ve joined forces with my fellow Law coursemates to launch the Oxford Brookes Commercial Awareness Society where I am a content writer. This role allows me to educate and help to strengthen students’ commercial awareness. In addition, I volunteer for JLAP (Junior Lawyers Against Poverty) where I can do research and contribute towards change for the better. I’m a Recruitment officer for UNA-YP (United Nations Association- Youth Platform), which was recently recognised as the official UK platform for UNA for young people. Alongside my roles, I am also the President for OBCSSA (Oxford Brookes Chinese Students&Scholars Association). In this role, I support mostly Chinese international students but also to share the beauty of our culture and history with those who are enthusiastic to learn more!
If there’s anything you’d like to hear more about or contribute towards, do drop me an email! Don’t be shy!
