Hi, I'm Oscar your 2022 YouX Board President.
As YouX President, I am always available to listen to your concerns and suggestions as to how we or the University can make your student life better. So please don’t be afraid to reach out to me with issues or concerns anytime, or even just for a cup of coffee! You can contact me at email@example.com.
PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Second year)
What inspired you to run for YouX President?
My goal is to remove politics from YouX, maintain good governance of YouX, increase the transparency of the decision-making process of student representatives and ensure genuine students' concerns are addressed. It’s important that the Student Services and Amenities Fees should be spent on the students themselves to ensure the best university experience.
What do you hope to achieve in your role in 2022?
- Rebranding of the AUU to YouX
- Better support for students welfare
- Clubs engagement (larger clubs events)
- Better engagement with students
- Bigger and better O’Week for 2022
What is the biggest mistake you have made at Uni?
To not take a break when I know I need one! University is hard so please make sure you reach out to the support services/take a break if it gets too hard!
What is your number one tip for a new student?
Don't be the student who does no work for a group project. You could skip a lecture and just watch it on echo360 later, but we all know you're not going to do that.
What one thing do you wish you had known when you started Uni?
Join a club, it will be well worth it, then take on a role/committee position when you are ready. Join YouXand take part in events!
