I’m a 21 year-old student JS Immunology from Wexford. I have been actively involved in student life since 1st year. I am running for President because I have seen where the Student’s Union works well and where it is in urgent need of reform . Be it the form of an enhanced careers advisory service, a radicalisation of student run services, or serving you in a more interactive fashion, I believe I can show you what the Student’s Union is capable of doing for you without the nonsense!
Experience: Accommodation advisory service, TCDSU Public Relations OFficer, Trinity VDP Marketing Secretary, DuFC Member, Campus residents committee

Personal Development: While it may be a cliché that you should do more than study in college I believe that I can use my time as President to aid student development. In a competitive jobs market at home and abroad, employers are looking for diversified skills beyond your degree. I intend to develop courses in areas such as computer skills, first aid and language courses. Where possible these courses would be run by other students.
