A poem of a Future President,
As February looms and elections set in,
We ask ourselves – Who are the SU? Again….
It’s a rush of people,
Why do we vote?
What they promise might not get done,
Plus, I’m a third year – seems pointless hm?
I’m here to tell,
Yes VABS, that’s me.
Presidency is something that’s been a dream to me.
To make real change and stand-up strong,
For the students around me who’s voice is drowned out.
I represent you,
The party, the study, the late-night cigarettes,
The family focused, the supporting friend, the one who’s constantly busy, the one that just needs of a friend.
I represent you.
Over 4 years at BCU I have witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly. In my 2nd year, Women’s Officer (2017), I learnt the value of team collaboration and developed my public speaking skills at events where I represented student’s voice. This year I had the privilege of being the President of the first protected Women’s Society at BCUSU and the gained knowledge of the current student climate will allow me to develop future progress in all aspects of university life.
My previous achievements will seem small to the flourishing change I can bring to the students of BCU
